Mothers of the South
Portraiture of the White Tenant Farm WomanBook - 1977
Margaret Jarman Hagood was a leading sociologist of the Depression South. In 1937 she visited 254 tenant houses in Georgia, Alabama, and the Carolina Piedmont, talking with southern mothers. Mothers of the South records not only the results of her work but the voices, attitudes, and expectations of the people she interviewed. Hagood's work is invaluable for its insigh into the lost world of tenant farmers. It serves as a window into the life experiences, agricultural practices, social organization, and values of tenant families.
