Title:Oral history interview with C. Vann Woodward, January 12, 1991
Date:1991 Jan. 12
Description:

At the age of eighty-two, C. Vann Woodward, one of the great lights of southern history, reflects on race relations in the American South, his own experiences in the region, and some of the contributions historians have made to the field. The interview is especially focused on southern attitudes toward segregation in the period between World War II and the mid-1950s, though it is certainly not limited to that time. The interviewer also proposes some of his theses on the civil rights movement to Woodward in order to elicit the historian's reaction.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
