I gave a tour last year of the FACE OF THE GODS: ART AND ALTARS OF AFRICA
AND THE AFRICAN-AMERICAS at the museum in Montgomery, Alabama where I worked
as part of the education department. The artist of one altar used common
Christian symbols to represent gods from their own religion. I asked the
kids if they recognized the sculpture in the center of the woman in the blue
robe and no one even had a guess. Here is an instance when knowing something
ABOUT Christianity would have served the students well.
