abstract
From May 25 through June 8, 2007, two librarians from the Z. Smith Reynolds Library of Wake Forest University in Winston- Salem, North Carolina, accompanied faculty and students from the sociology course "Social Stratification in the Deep South" on a tour of the American South, focusing on the race, class, and gender issues that have long divided the region. More than a simple tour of civil rights sites, the course was a lived experience that challenged students to question and examine the evidence of stratification that still typifies much of the South. The article details the course and the librarians' roles.
