“He changed the way I view literature and the world. I was shocked to see a bald, middle-aged white man teaching African American Lit; however, Prof. Ernest discussed race and literature on a level that was fresh, engaging, and insightful. The paradox of understanding will stay with me forever.”
“An amazing professor who will radically affect the way you see things. He invests so much time into his students and their assignments that you know he cares about your progress. One of those unique professors you will always remember and to whom you will forever remain indebted.”
