The Conversation Continues

Brookwood students:

Part of our dialog with BGA has been about our perceptions of the “other”– how we think about southerners and how they think about northerners. When we started this conversation, we each had some unflattering ideas about the other (northerners as “rude” and southerners as “racist” and “hillbillies”). Our conversation seemed to challenge those ideas, but it’s time to revisit the issue. Now that we are studying the Civil Rights Movement, how do our studies– the viewing of photos such as the one below, video footage of events in Little Rock, and the reading of Warriors Don’t Cry— affect your perception of southerners?
