Excerpt

For the last four years, the Department of History of the University of Mississippi has sponsored the Chancellor's Symposium on Southern History dealing with the problem of race relations in the American South. For each symposium, prominent scholars from across the United States have been invited to present their latest research and findings on issues related to the race relations question. In 1975, the symposium dealt with the question of slavery in the American South. Carl Degler, Eugene Genovese, David Brion Davis, Stanley Engerman, William Scarborough, John Blassingame, and Kenneth Stampp each confronted and analyzed one specific aspect of slavery and offered his interpretations of it. Under the editorship of Professor Harry P. Owens, the proceedings of that conference were published as Perspectives and Irony in American Slavery (Jackson, Miss.: University Press of Mississippi, 1976).

With the success of the slavery conference, the following year's symposium continued the race relations topic by dealing with the issue of race relations during the Reconstruction period. Willie Lee Rose, Joel Williamson, Richard Sutch and Roger Ransom, George Fredrickson, and C. Vann Woodward each approached the question from his own individual perspective. Under the editorship of Professor David Sansing, the papers from this conference were published as What Was Freedom's Price? (Jackson, Miss.: University Press of Mississippi, 1978).
