A Place Like Mississippi
A Journey Through a Real and Imagined Literary Landscape
W. Ralph Eubanks - 2021-03-16
Goodreads Rating
There is a palpable connection to the landscapes of Mississippi displayed in the work of the state’s many lauded writers. This connection to the land runs deep—across onerous lines of class, gender and race—spanning generations of authors birthed in the Magnolia State. It’s difficult to read Faulkner, Welty, Wright, and Ward and not come away with ...

In this collection of essays, first published together in 1903, he eloquently affirms that it is beneath the dignity of a human be...

Teaching W.E.B. DuBois's _The Souls of Black Folk_ tomorrow with @imaniperry. I reread the book ever year, and I am always struck by the continued relevance of what DuBois referred to as "two arguments unanswered and, indeed, unanswerable." 1/      source

Imani Perry - 2011-05-23

For a nation that often optimistically claims to be post-racial, we are still mired in the practices of racial inequality that plays out in law, policy, and in our local communities.
