Georgia in Black and White: Explorations in Race Relations of a Southern State, 1865-1950

Chapter One is "We have no chance of Justice before the Courts: The Freedmen's Struggle for Power in Greene County, Georgia, 1865-1874" by Jonathan M. Bryant

"The essays challenge the familiar southern historical paradigm of white power/black oppression. The book's predominantly prosopographical format successfully illuminates the wide-ranging and creative responses of individuals (black and white) and groups to segregation, disfranchisement, and racial violence."
