A Re-examination of Henry Grady's New South.
Mixon, Harold
Historian Henry Grady's speeches, particularly one delivered to the New England Club of New York City in 1886, are credited with persuading the North of the South's continued domination of blacks, its need for increased industrialization, and its broadened agriculture. Grady's term "The New South" is defined as a racially conservative, even white supremacist, doctrine designed to convince Northerners to invest in the South. This "myth" of "The New South" during the recovery period projected the image needed for Southern self-identity and for Northern reconciliation. The persuasive qualities of Grady as a publicly identified spokesman spread the idea of "The New South" extensively and "adjusted ideas to people and people to ideas." (CH)
