Additional Information

When Zandria Robinson returned home to interview African Americans in Memphis, she was often greeted with some version of the caution "I hope you know this ain't Chicago." In this important new work, Robinson critiques ideas of black identity constructed through a northern lens and situates African Americans as central shapers of contemporary southern culture. Analytically separating black southerners from their migrating cousins, fictive kin, and white counterparts, Robinson demonstrates how place intersects with race, class, gender, and regional identities and differences.

Robinson grounds her work in Memphis--the first big city heading north out of the Mississippi Delta. Although Memphis sheds light on much about the South, Robinson does not suggest that the region is monolithic. Instead, she attends to multiple Souths, noting the distinctions between southern places. Memphis, neither Old South nor New South, sits at the intersections of rural and urban, soul and post-soul, and civil rights and post-civil rights, representing an ongoing conversation with the varied incarnations of the South, past and present.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

In this brilliant manifesto Professor Robinson single handedly resuscitates the nexus of the American South, Southern Studies, and sociology--brininging vibrant prose and a keen cultural eye to important questions about race in a post Civil Rights and post Obama Amercia. This book is required reading.
This ain't Chicago tells our stories. It gives validity to the south as a region of creatives, thinking and highly intuitive individuals. A lot has happened in the last 50+ years since the civil rights movement and the soul music era. No has covered that history, until NOW. This ain't Chicago is a must have for southerns and all Americans to learn about the region that has so much impact on the entire country.
