You Gotta Deal with It

Black Family Relations in a Southern Community

Theodore R. Kennedy

At a time when blacks are returning to the South in record numbers, this book offers proof that the stereotypical Southern town--replete with poverty, prejudice, and hopelessness for blacks--still persists despite the civil rights revolution. Presenting an anthropological overview of one community and in-depth analysis of four extended families, this book dispels misconceptions about the Southern black family and shows it to be a coherent, well-defined, and viable structure.
