Appalachia and the South--Collective Memory, Identity, and Representation.
Griffin, Larry J.; Thompson, Ashley B.
Appalachian Journal, v29 n3 p296-327 Spr 2002
The fields of Southern Studies and Appalachian Studies have developed along two separate tracks, due largely to perceptions within the fields, perpetuated by the media, that racism is more prevalent in the non-Appalachian South. However, polls of over 13,000 Southerners indicate that Appalachians harbor racist sentiments at least as much as non-Appalachian Southerners. (Contains 67 notes.) (TD)
