Southerners, Too? challenges the view that "southern heritage" refers to white southerners only by revealing that, historically and culturally, African Americans have been integral to southern life and history. In much of the public and scholarly debates on the display of the Confederate flag, "southern heritage" has been seen in the context of the white south. Although there are some published works on the black southerner, in the debate and in some of the literature, African Americans are either invisible or appear in an ambivalent manner. The intent of this work is to contribute to, and encourage, a new focus on the Black South.

In this pioneering study of what it means to be Southern, John Shelton Reed uses a survey to examine Southerners as an ethnic group. He finds that such experiences as urban residence, travel, education, and media exposure generally erode such traditional attitudes as ethnocentrism, racism, fatalism, localism, authoritarianism, xenophobia, and resistance to innovation. At the same time, however, Reed shows that these modernizing experiences heighten regIonal consciousness among Southerners. Reed concludes that "despite mass society, Southerners are and apparently will remain 'different'; because of [mass society], they will remain aware of their difference." In this, he writes, Southerners are like other cultural minorities in American society.

The South often seems like a foreign country to newcomers from other parts of the United States. And for people from other countries, Southern customs and lifestyle can be even more bewildering. For anyone who has ever wondered why the style of conducting busines in the South is different or why some Southerners are still fighting the Civil War, this book will be a valuable guide. The informative and entertaining essays will help new Southerners understand and appreciate the region and its people, and they will also serve as a refresher course on the South for those who are comfortably settled in. Each of the essays adopts a different perspective to suggest just how the South is different from other American regions. In turn, they examine the special meaning of history for Southerners, the boundaries of the South as a geographical and as an imaginary region, the rhetoric and the reality of Southern race relations, the South's change from a rural to a metropolitan culture, the myth of the Southern belle and the reality of Southern women's lives, the political metamorphosis that turned the Solid South into the Solid Republican South, and the recent transformation of the poorest region in the country into an economic wonder called the Sunbelt. Readers will learn that when Southerners ask strangers what church they attend, the intent is not to pry but to be friendly. They will also discover that "where the kudzu grows" is one of the best ways to define where the South is located. The essays offer the insights of both shcolarship and experience, for the contributors -- most of them originally non-Southerners -- learned about this region by living in it as well as studying it. The contributors are Julia Kirk Blackwelder, Paul D. Escott, David R. Goldfield, Nell Irvin Painter, John Shelton Reed, and Thomas E. Terrill.

During the civil rights movement, epic battles for justice were fought in the streets, at lunch counters, and in the classrooms of the American South. Just as many battles were waged, however, in the hearts and minds of ordinary white southerners whose world became unrecognizable to them. Jason Sokol’s vivid and unprecedented account of white southerners’ attitudes and actions, related in their own words, reveals in a new light the contradictory mixture of stubborn resistance and pragmatic acceptance–as well as the startling and unexpected personal transformations–with which they greeted the enforcement of legal equality. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Not since 1869 has somebody taken the time to update the list of Confederate dead buried in one of the most beautiful and sacred places Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. Cemetery. Those who relied on the 1869 list found it filled with so many inaccuracies as to be almost unusable. The thousands of Southern soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their young country and were buried at Hollywood, usually with little pomp or ceremony, have been waiting for proper recognition for a long time. Many of these men have faced the injustice of having a wrong name or unit etched into their headstone. They have been relegated to obscurity and abandonment because their descendants knew not where to look. Now, thanks to Hollywood Cemetery expert and historian Chris Ferguson, the cry of these brave soldiers from across the ages has finally been answered. Ferguson has spent many painstaking hours scouring various archives and pouring over countless documents to give these soldiers their due. He has assembled the first comprehensive and accurate roster of Confederate dead buried in the South's most famous cemetery. This definitive work will certainly help some families discover where their Confederate ancestor rests. Historians, descendants, genealogists, Civil War students and cemetery buffs owe a debt of gratitude to Ferguson for putting this information in an easy to use format.

"Creeks and Southerners studies the ways in which many children of these relationships lived both as Creek Indians and white Southerners. By carefully altering their physical appearances, choosing appropriate clothing, learning multiple languages, embracing maternal and paternal kinsmen and kinswomen, and balancing their loyalties, the children of intermarriages found ways to bridge what seemed to be an unbridgeable divide."--BOOK JACKET.
