Episode Summary

EDIT
Theda Perdue: Race and the Atlanta Cotton States Exposition of 1895
AIRED:
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. Perdue finds that this turn-of-the-century performance of race played out in surprising ways, particularly in terms of the voice this event gave to the minorities who took part.moreless
