One-Day Seminar: Henry Grady’s New South hosted by Watson-Brown Foundation (Held Online)
Henry Grady is known as ‘The Spokesman for the New South.” Grady’s vision of a New South included a more industrialized and diversified economy powered by northern investments. Grady insisted that white supremacy posed no threat to the peaceful coexistence of Black and White southerners. What caused this influential writer to champion the industrialization of the South, without change to its traditional racial hierarchy? Join us at the (virtual) table as we examine and discuss primary source documents illuminating the influential “New South” movement during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
All attendees of this free Seminar will be provided with a certificate for continuing education and a digital copy of the agenda and documents (found here).
