Segregation The Inner Conflict in the South

by Robert Penn Warren, William Bedford Clark

Segregation The Inner Conflict in the South Synopsis

First published in 1956, Segregation is a collection of Robert Penn Warren's informal conversations with southerners in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. Warren, who in his own writings often explored the theme of race in American life, traveled through his native region to talk with scores of individuals--taxi drivers, NAACP leaders, members of White Citizens groups, college students, preachers--to report their responses to the Court's decision.

Segregation The Inner Conflict in the South Press Reviews

Robert Penn Warren has done an admirable and moving piece. . . . To sensitive Southerners who read the book it will sound almost like a cry of anguish, as indeed it is. --New York Times Book Review It is doubtful that any other book has brought so sharply into focus the impact on the South of the court's action. Here the region's fears and hatreds stand out in vivid relief, as well as its nostalgic desires to maintain the best of its traditions in the face of indisputable, unaccepted knowledge that the past has irrevocably flown. --Catholic World
