Professor Bauerlein talks about his book Negrophobia: A Race Riot in Atlanta, 1906, published by Encounter Books. The book tells the story of revolts against African-Americans during a bitter gubernatorial contest in 1906. The author attributes these riots to the racially charged campaigning done by the candidates in order to secure white votes. He wrote about the ramifications of the riots by tracing the effects they had on prominent Atlantans of the day including W.E.B. DuBois. After the presentation the author answered questions from members of the audience. close
