Beyond Black & White : Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in the U.S. South and Southwest



Edited by Stephanie Cole & Alison M. Parker [College at Brockport faculty member] ; introduction by Nancy A. Hewitt [College at Brockport alum].

“The complex, changing and oppressive ‘multiracisms’—to use Ronit Lentin's term—of the U.S. South and Southwest are brilliantly captured in this powerful collection of linked essays. So too are the ways in which differing but overlapping experiences of race, citizenship and terror created both common ground and grounds for division among racialized groups.”--David Roediger, University of Illinois, and author, Colored White: Transcending the Racial Past
