Regester is a very humorous and entertaining professor. She is very informative on African American history. The reading load is a little extreme and unreasonable. We watched really great films. The exams were a little difficult because there is so much to detail she is looking for, but she gives points if you can touch bases with what she has mentioned in the lecture. Heads up, there are two long (to me) 7-9 page papers on top of the midterm and final exam. She does not treat any student different from the next. As far as the previous comment is concerned, I just wanted to let it be known she treats everyone the same!

Pros: Class was easy
Cons: Openly allowed athletes of a, ahem, certain background to pass around notes during her exams. Did not seem to care when this was pointed out to her.
Cursory grading practices, particularly on essays. It was apparent that she didn't read closely and just rattled off some points to put a grade down.
This class made me question the entire merit of African American Studies as an academic focus.
If you do attend the lecture, be prepared to hear very little actual history and a lot of her opinion.

Pros: shows some movies
Cons: Her tests are way harder than they should be...most of the ID's on the exams come from outside readings not the lecture...i have better grades on my organic chemistry and analytical chemistry exams...so def. not an easy A or Easy B

Pros: -you do learn a lot
Cons: -her tests are insane. She expects you to memorize every little detail of what she covers (all she does during lecture is talk at you for 1 hr and 15 mins) It's boring and you feel like studying all that material is overwhelming...especially since she doesn't give any clues as to what will actually be on the test

She is very knowledeable on the topic of the Black Experience and is willing to work with you in any situation if you just go and talk to her! Although the class covered alot of material, it was great!
