"The things we are reading in the books are not adequate to describe the reality. For example, just yesterday in the course on "Blacks and Jews" we have a whole chapter in the book called "Black Zion," on a particular group of black Jews in Atlanta. But when the students actually went to that community, they came back saying, that chapter did not prepare me for what I experienced...what I experienced was so much more complex. That is the exhilaration- people really are actively learning and not just digesting something cognitively, intellectually. They are experiencing the way real people act and they will remember that."

- Theophus (Thee) Smith - Associate Professor of Religion
