Abstract

Abstract:

Originally given as a speech on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill at a festival in remembrance of Thomas Wolfe, this essay explores the relationship of African American southerners to the idea of what is “southern.” It looks at the place of Thomas Jefferson at the origins of the notion of “southern” and uses the recent, award-winning play Hamilton to confront the idea of race and the southern construct.
