Green's new book is Educational Reconstruction: African American Schools in the Urban South, 1865-1890.
Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
Ku-Klux: The Birth of the Klan During Reconstruction by Elaine Parsons.Learn more about Educational Reconstruction at the Fordham University Press website.
Well-researched, compelling, and non-glorifying of a violent organization, this monograph critically looks at the organization’s origins, effects on local communities, and its legacy for the nation. It is a well-needed critical reassessment on the Ku Klux Klan and the violence of Reconstruction. Moreover, it helps to explain how the idea of the Ku-Klux served to facilitate sectional reconciliation and black exclusion.
