The Way It Was in the South is the only book-length treatment of the African American presence in a single state. From the legalization of slavery in the Georgia Colony in 1751 through debates that preceded the Confederate emblem's removal from the state's now defunct flag, it chronicles the stunning record of black Georgians' innovation, persistence, and triumph in the face of adversity and oppression.
