PUB: Southern Cultures

In celebration of Black History Month, Southern Cultures permanently has
dedicated a new section of our website to all of our essays and features
from the last decade on AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE.  This material
includes interviews with many famous figures (and lesser known ones, too),
as well as material which explores many aspects of the experiences of
African Americans inside and outside the South.  In addition, we’ve also
been presenting featured content on our homepage to commemorate African
American history: an essay from  Timothy B. Tyson, author of Blood Done Sign
My Name, who reveals why Martin Luther King’s message  endures and what he
means to the South and the nation.

To date, over 65,000 readers have viewed our material online.  To read our
new section on AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE, please visit:
