Entangled by White Supremacy: Reform in World War I-era South Carolina

Janet G. Hudson


This book analyzes World War I-era South Carolina, a state whose white minority maintained political power by rigidly enforcing white supremacy over an African American majority. Considering the aspirations and actions of both black and white reformers, the book looks at the influence of a multifaceted ideology of white supremacy that became a barrier to the region's progress. Detailing African American resistance to white supremacy long before the Civil Rights era, the book illuminates the critical nature of South Carolina to the civil rights movement.

Keywords: World War I, South Carolina, political power, white supremacy, black reformers, white reformers, African American resistance, civil rights movement
