Politics and Religion in the White South

Fred Arthur Bailey

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter explores Southern Baptist racial ideology during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the American South. It clarifies the enduring ties between racial conservatism and related regional orthodoxies in politics, morality, and economics. It explains how upper-class domination of what passed for official religion coalesced seamlessly with political, racial, and moral orthodoxy, and how it influenced important policy matters on such issues as lynching, disfranchisement, employment, law, and education, especially for African Americans.

Keywords:   Southern Baptist, racial ideology, American South, racial conservatism, regional orthodoxies, upper-class domination, African Americans, lynching, disfranchisement
