White Supremacist Propaganda and Strategy in the American South, 1945-1965

I will analyze the various ways that post-World War II segregationists sought to intensify southern support for the South's system of racial domination and to legitimate that system in northerners' eyes. My next book, based on extensive archival research in the papers of segregationist leaders and in the papers of civil rights groups that monitored the segregationists, will provide a fuller sense of the drama of civil rights battles in the period--and of the unpredictability of their outcome. Most historians have--understandably--focused on grassroots organizing among African Americans in the period. We need fuller research on their opposition. A Fellowship would allow me to complete an eight-year project with a full scholarly monograph.
