Summary
Based on nearly a decade of painstaking research in archives and census records, 'Buried in the Bitter Waters' provides irrefutable evidence that racial cleansing occurred again and again on American soil, and fundamentally reshaped the geography of race. "We have long known about horrific episodes of lynching in the South, but the story of widespread racial cleansing - above and below the Mason-Dixon Line - has remained almost entirely unknown. Time after time, in the period between Reconstruction and the 1920s, whites banded together to drive out the blacks in their midst. They burned and killed indiscriminately and drove thousands from their homes, sweeping entire counties clear of blacks to make them racially "pure." The expulsions were swift - in many cases, it took no more than twenty-four hours to eliminate an entire African-American population. Shockingly, these areas remain virtually all-white to this day." "Based on original interviews and nearly a decade of painstaking research in archives and census records, Buried in the Bitter Waters provides irrefutable evidence that racial cleansing occurred again and again on American soil and fundamentally reshaped the geography of race."--BOOK JACKET. (Blackwell)
