Amazing course! Conversational, relaxed lectures that are well-informed, paired with excellent archival footage--mostly generated by the presenting professor.

Very interesting and informative course, I have a better understanding of southern culture, the stories, music and art I often heard my grandmother speak of.

From the lesson

Considering the content and form of the stories, toasts, dozens, auctions and religious sermons and what they reveal about Southern Culture.
