The experiences during this assortment contain vital views that experience constructed up to now twenty years between students drawn to gender and politics, the tradition of resistance, and "the hegemonic functionality of ‘whiteness.’"

Vann Woodward’s landmark 1955 examine: In its idiosyncratic, contradictory, and multifaceted improvement and alertness, the profession of Jim Crow was once, certainly, unusual. extra, as those experiences demonstrate—and as alluded to within the title—it is folly to try to find the genesis of the South’s institutional racial segregation in any unmarried occasion, period, or coverage. "Instead," as W. Fitzhugh Brundage notes in his advent to the quantity, "formal segregation developed via an untidy means of experimentation and adaptation."
