Telling Memories Among Southern Women
Domestic Workers and Their Employers in the Segregated SouthBook - 2002
In Telling Memories Among Southern Women, Susan Tucker presents a revealing collection of oral-history narratives that explore the complex, sometimes enigmatic bond between black female domestic workers and their white employers from the turn of the twentieth century to the civil rights revolution of the 1960s. Based on interviews with forty-two women of both races from the Deep South, these narratives express the full range of human emotions and successfully convey the ties that united--and the tensions and conflicts that separated--these two mutually dependent groups of women.
