Remembering Jim Crow

Imagine winning a seat on the town council but not being allowed to serve. Imagine being an 11 year old girl sexually harassed by police simply because of your color. Imagine being segregated at a hospital and receiving inadequate treatment. “Stories of rapes and beatings, of houses burned to the ground and land stolen, of harrowing escapes in the middle of the night” appear alongside accounts of “the extraordinary and multiple ways in which resistance to Jim Crow occurred and was nourished.” (Publishers Weekly). Read these voices in Remembering Jim Crow – African American Tell about Life in the Segregated South, a book and CD now available at our library and part of our One Book, One College series.
