Summary
A wave of bold American writing from both white and black authors gave expression to Southern life during World War II and the years that followed. This program tells the story of that literary development up to the era of the Civil Rights movement. It presents the work of Eudora Welty, Richard Wright, Robert Penn Warren, Ralph Ellison, Lillian Smith, Flannery O'Connor, and others - as well as a revealing 1997 interview with Welty herself. An inventive dramatization of the opening of Ellison's Invisible Man evokes the sense of surreal alienation conveyed in that novel. In addition, viewers will find excerpts from the rarely seen 1951 film adaptation of Wright's Native Son, starring Wright himself, as well as readings from O'Connor's Wise Blood, "Everything That Rises Must Converge," and "A Good Man Is Hard to Find."

Summary
In his 1917 essay, "The Sahara of the Bozart," H. L. Mencken berated the American South for its artistic and cultural poverty. Within a decade, however, his assertions had become irrelevant. This program depicts the rapid development of Southern American literature during the first half of the 20th century. It explores the work of William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, Zora Neale Hurston, Jean Toomer, Erskine Caldwell, Margaret Mitchell, John Crowe Ransom, and others. Dramatized readings help to illuminate passages from Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, Toomer's Cane, Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!, Wolfe's Look Homeward, Angel, and Ransom's poem, "Bells for John Whiteside's Daughter."

Summary
As America began to confront the injustices of Jim Crow, a new generation of literary voices rose up from below the Mason-Dixon Line - voices that spoke not just to the soul of the South but to the nation's. This program examines Southern American literature from the early 1960s to today's literary landscape. It highlights the work of Walker Percy, Alice Walker, William Styron, Ernest Gaines, Reynolds Price, Alex Haley, Margaret Walker, Lee Smith, Larry Brown, Clyde Edgerton, Pat Conroy, and others. Interviews with many of these authors, including Alice Walker and William Styron, are also featured. Dramatized readings help to illuminate passages from Percy's The Moviegoer, Styron's The Confessions of Nat Turner, and Lee Smith's Fair and Tender Ladies.
