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.
