There Goes My Everything: White Southerners in the Age of Civil Rights, 1945-1975
Publisher: Vintage Books USAFormat: Paperback
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+ó-Ç-ôas well as the startling and unexpected personal transformations+ó-Ç-ôwith which they greeted the enforcement of legal equality.
