The Southernization of the United States with Cynthia Tucker and Frye Gaillard

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Hagemeyer Library of Central Piedmont Community College Present:

Pulitzer Prize-winner Cynthia Tucker and award-winning author Frye Gaillard present The Southernization of America, a compelling series of linked essays considering the role of the South in shaping America’s current political and cultural landscape. They dive deeper, examining the morphing of the Southern strategy of the 1970s into the Republican Party of today, the racial backlash against President Obama, family separation on our southern border, the rise of the Christian right, the white supremacist riots in Charlottesville, the death of George Floyd, and the attack on our nation’s capital. They find hope in the South too, a legacy rooted in the civil rights years that might ultimately lead the nation on the path to redemption. Tucker and Gaillard bring a multiracial perspective and years of political reporting to bear on a critical moment in American history, a time of racial reckoning and democracy under siege.
