Living with Jim Crow: African American Women and Memories of the Segregated South

By Leslie Brown, Associate Professor of History, and Anne Valk. Palgrave Macmillan, 2010. This collection of recollections from women who lived through legal segregation examines the roles they played in their families and communities. Winner of the 2011 Oral History Association Book Award, the book is praised as “an antidote to the many accounts of segregation in the Civil Rights movement that overlook women as major forces of change.”
