This groundbreaking book collects black womens personal recollections of their public and private lives during the period of legal segregation in the American South. Using first-person narratives, collected through oral history interviews, the book emphasizes womens role in their families and communities, treating women as important actors in the economic, social, cultural, and political life of the segregated South. By focusing on the commonalities of womens experiences, as well as the ways that womens lives differed from the experiences of southern black men, Living with Jim Crow analyzes the interlocking forces of racism and sexism.
