A portion of the people : three hundred years of southern Jewish life( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year 1800, South Carolina was home to more Jews than any other place in North America. As old as the province of Carolina itself, the Jewish presence has been a vital but little-examined element in the growth of cities and towns, in the economy of slavery and post-slavery society, and in the creation of American Jewish religious identity. The record of a landmark exhibition that will change the way people think about Jewish history and American history, A Portion of the People: Three Hundred Years of Southern Jewish Life presents a remarkable group of art and cultural objects and a provocative investigation of the characters and circumstances that produced them. The book and exhibition are the products of a seven-year collaboration by the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, the McKissick Museum of the University of South Carolina, and the College of Charleston

Cheating the stillness : the world of Julia Peterkin by Gayla Jamison( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1929 Pulitzer Prize for fiction went to Scarlet sister Mary, the gritty tale of a fiercely independent single mother set in a South Carolina African American farming community. The novel was a best-seller at a time when American readers--white or black--weren't interested in rural African American life. Who was the author, this startling woman named Julia Peterkin? Was she white or black? According to African American scholar and activist W.E.B. DuBois, she was a southern white woman with 'the eye and the ear to see beauty and know truth.' Dividing her life between her South Carolina plantation and the literary world of New York, Peterkin ... was paradoxical, controversial and broke all the rules, revolutionizing American literature and rebelling against society's expectations for a southern lady. At the height of her career, she inexplicably stopped writing"--Container

Centered around a small plantation in the heart of middle Georgia's nineteenth-century cotton culture, 'The Granite Farm Letters' send forth from the Civil War years not simply a record of clashing armies at the front or of the fraying fabric of life at home but also the correspondence of a close-knit family--the candid love and longing of husband and wife, the warm bonds of parents and children held firm through the turbulence of war. - Publisher

All Gods Dangers by Nate Shaw( Book )

2 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a cold January morning in 1969, a young white graduate student from Massachusetts, stumbling along the dim trail of a long-defunct radical organization of the 1930s, the Alabama Sharecropper Union, heard that there was a survivor and went looking for him. In a rural settlement 20 miles or so from Tuskegee in east-central Alabama he found him--the man he calls Nate Shaw--a black man, 84 years old, in full possession of every moment of his life and every facet of its meaning. ... Theodore Rosengarten, the student, had found a black Homer, bursting with his black Odyssey and able to tell it with awesome intellectual power, with passion, with the almost frightening power of memory in a man who could neither read nor write but who sensed that the substance of his own life, and a million other black lives like his, were the very fiber of the nation's history."
