About the Author:

Elisabeth Rauh Bethel is a professor of sociology at Lander College in Greenwood, South Carolina. She holds degrees from William Woods University, Oklahoma City University, and the University of Oklahoma.

Review:

"Simply a splendid study in American social history. No recent book tells more about the twentieth-century rural black community and how its men and women dealt with opportunity and oppression. Southern black immigrants to northern cities look very different because Bethel has liberated them from sterile social stereotypes."--Herbert Gutman
