Where We Stand: Voices of Southern Dissent, ed. Anthony Dunbar (review)

by E.M. Beck
Southern Cultures, Vol. 11, No. 4: Winter 2005

NewSouth Books, 2004

This slender volume, edited by Anthony Dunbar and with a foreword by former President Jimmy Carter, contains twelve essays by well-known and highly respected progressive southerner activists and academics. While white southerners are often stereotyped as extreme right-wingers and hard-rock Bible thumpers, these essays are contrary evidence that the southern progressive tradition of dissent is alive.
