"Dodging through Dixie": St. Clair Drake and the Struggle Against Jim Crow in the South, 1935-1937

Abstract:

In this paper, I consider how the sociologist St. Clair Drake confronted the problem of what was euphemistically termed “race relations” in the South—first, as young activist and junior member of the faculty of newly formed Dillard University under Horace Mann Bond, and, second, as a sociologist and collaborator with Allison Davis and Burleigh Gardener on The Deep South (1941) study, which was the first published social anthropological investigation of black and white relations in rural and urban localities of Louisiana and Mississippi during the Great Depression. In chronicling Drake’s experiences along these two distinct trajectories—the activist and academic— I address a dynamic range of black intellectual practices in the South during the Depression era, the place of black colleges and universities in historic social change movements, and how a genre of sociological research engaged the “problems” of racial violence, segregation, and discrimination reflected the concerns of historic coalitions of protest and reform.
