Re: Snow Hill Institute in AL
In Response To: Re: Snow Hill Institute in AL ()

The entire electronic edition of Edwards' Twenty-Five Years in the Black Belt is online here:

http://docsouth.unc.edu/edwards/edwards.html

It's a fascinating snapshot of the region in the years immediately following the CW. And a bit chilling because the Black Belt, particularly Wilcox County where Snow Hill was/is located, is still among the poorest and least educated in the country 140 years after the book's publication.

La plus ca change . . .
