Abstract: This is an article that covers a workshop lecture and field trip that addressed the evolution of lost cause mentality in the South and the color line that emerged. It includes an account of a visit to the Fox Theater where participants used the exterior steps to visit what had been the segregated "colored" section of the theater.
