Description To Live and Dine in Dixie by Angela Jill Cooley

This book explores the changing food culture of the urban American South during the Jim Crow era by examining how race, ethnicity, class, and gender contributed to the development and maintenance of racial segregation in public eating places. Focusing primarily on the 1900s to the 1960s, Angela Jill Cooley identifies the cultural differences between activists who saw public eating places like urban lunch counters as sites of political participation and believed access to such spaces a right of citizenship, and white supremacists who interpreted desegregation as a challenge to property rights and advocated local control over racial issues. Significant legal changes occurred across this period as the federal government sided at first with the white supremacists but later supported the unprecedented progress of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, whichuamong other thingsurequired desegregation of the nationAEs restaurants. Because the culture of white supremacy that contributed to racial segregation in public accommodations began in the white southern home, Cooley also explores domestic eating practices in nascent southern cities and reveals how the most private of activitiesucooking and diningu became a cause for public concern from the meeting rooms of local womenAEs clubs to the halls of the U.S. Congress.
Angela Jill Cooley is an assistant professor of history at Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA. She has a PhD from the University of Alabama, USA and a JD from the George Washington University Law, USA. School.
