Grounded in Charles Joyner's unique blend of rigorous scholarship and genuine curiosity, these thoughtful and incisive essays by the eminent southern historian and folklorist explore the South's extraordinary amalgam of cultural traditions.
Ranging from rites of power and resistance on the slave plantation to the passion of John Brown, from the creolization of language to the musical brew of blues, country, jazz, and rock, Shared Traditions reveals the rich and distinctive culture that has emerged from the mingling of African and European ways of expression and life.
