Religion and the Rise of Jim Crow in New Orleans
James B. Bennett

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"James Bennett's superbly researched book tackles the still timely problem of racial prejudice in American religion. Bennett's heart-rending account of the Jim Crow era in New Orleans describes the African-American insistence on open and mixed congregations amidst the failure of many white Protestant and Catholic leaders to resist bigotry. With stunning probity, it sheds new light on some of the most difficult events in America's religious and social development."--Jon Butler, Yale University

"A significant, innovative contribution to our understanding of segregation, religion and the South. Bennett's scholarship is impressive and he has produced a fine, well-written book."--Donald G. Mathews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
