Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This book is part of a growing list of published materials on the prospect and dilemma of black urban life in America. Drawing from the experiences of blacks in six Southern cities, In Search of the New South is essentially concerned with the status of blacks in the South between 1970 and 1980. While some qualitative changes have been noted, the book, as a whole, paints a bleak picture about the condition of blacks in the South. In fact, if one were to use the time-worn argument of the glass half-filled with water, it is clear that the authors have followed the half-empty glass approach.
