GLC Book Talk: Southern Journey: The Migrations of the American South, 1790-2020
Author Edward L. Ayers in conversation with David Blight on his new book titled Southern Journey: The Migrations of the American South, 1790-2020 (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 2020)
Southern Journey: The Migrations of the American South, by Edward Ayers, is a unique and stunning achievement of American and Southern history through mapping of geographic movement. The South, as Ayers shows so vividly, was through the 19th and into the 20th centuries, America’s most distinct region. On the issues of race, economic change and struggle, human health, environment, transportation, and politics in all its forms this book illustrates beautifully how movements of people shaped this history. Above all, Ayers has produced a cutting edge work of digital history aimed especially at teachers and classroom use. David Blight will conduct a wide-ranging conversation with Ayers about mapping specifically and interpretation more broadly of Southern and American history.
