Theda Perdue, Professor of Southern Culture at the University of North Carolina, discusses her book Race and the Atlanta Cotton States Exposition of 1895. The book examines the world's fair held in Atlanta, where white organizers - in order to attract business to the area - hoped to demonstrate they had solved problems of race in the city. The exposition featured American Indians, African Americans, and other racial, ethnic, and gender communities as part of the event's installations.
