Politics in the American South, Part 2 of 2

John Hope Franklin, Dewey Grantham, William Havard, and Edwin Yoder consider the extent to which politics in the American South is a peculiar expression of society. How has the shape of southern politics evolved in the mid-twentieth century, and with what special effects upon regional and national culture?

At the time of this interview, Franklin, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1980-81) and trustee of the Center, was professor of history at Duke University. Grantham, a Fellow at the Center (1982-83), was professor of history at Vanderbilt University. Havard was professor of political science at Vanderbilt University. Yoder was a columnist for the Washington Post Writers’ Group.
