Race and Rumors of Race. Challenge to American Crisis.

This influential work explores racial tensions in the American South and rising activism among blacks. it is considered to be one of the earliest documentations of the civil rights movement. Odum's views on race progressed over time and ultimately he was a leader, documenting folk life, hate crimes / lynchings, and the rich oral histories of African-American communities in the South. His work is difficult to classify under one discipline, although he identified most with sociology while being deeply committed to social welfare. Item #28745
