Dixie Rising: “Old Times There Are Not Forgotten….” History Highlights Series
June 13, 2017 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Tuesday, repeating until June 20, 2017
This refrain from the Southern anthem “Dixie” seems to suggest that the Civil War mentality of the Old South continues even after more than a century. Why is it that the US Census reports that the South is the fasting growing region of the United States in spite of its benighted status? These lectures will survey the unique role that the South has had, and is still having, on our collective American history, from its obsession with the Confederacy to the controversies over the novels of Harper Lee. In Faulkner’s words, “The past isn’t dead, it isn’t even past,” and in the case of the South, certainly not forgotten.
Lecturer, Dr. Alfred Hunt
