The Making of a Southern Liberal

(p.11) 1 The Making of a Southern Liberal
Willis Duke Weatherford

Andrew McNeill Canady

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter 1 examines how Weatherford moved from the provincial worldview of a small Texas town to become a southern liberal on matters of race and religion. This was brought on by his move to Nashville, Tenn., his academic studies at Vanderbilt University (undergraduate and graduate), his questioning of religious faith, his urban living, and his interaction with African Americans. Indeed, Weatherford’s movement toward liberalism was heavily influenced by his strong Protestant religious focus, a point he held in common with almost all white southern liberals of this era.
