Defending White Democracy: The Making of a Segregationist Movement and the Remaking of Racial Politics, 1936-1965

by

Defending White Democracy: The Making of a Segregationist Movement and the Remaking of Racial Politics, 1936-1965 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

After the Supreme Court ruled school segregation unconstitutional in 1954, southern white backlash seemed to explode overnight. However, Jason Morgan Ward argues that southern conservatives began mobilizing against civil rights some years earlier, when the New Deal politics of the mid-1930s threatened the monopoly on power that whites held in the South. Ward uncovers a parallel history of segregationist opposition that mirrors the new focus on the long civil rights movement.

About the Author

Jason Morgan Ward is assistant professor of history at Mississippi State University.
