Encyclopedia article about Lillian Smith's work, Killers of the Dream, which articulated the indignation about the South's injustices and inequities during the pre-civil rights era. Killers of the Dream is arguably the most influential and enduring of the many writings this self-described "tortured southern liberal" produced over her three-decade career. The work consists of sociological and historical analysis, editorial commentary, and allegory.
