Description: Interviews conducted by Mark Schultz between 1988 and 2001 in and around Hancock County, Ga., about the primary ways that white and black lives actually intersected there in the years between 1910 and 1950. Interviewees include black and white landowners, tenants, lumber workers, tradesmen, soldiers, teachers, and preachers; men and women; and migrants to northern cities and lifelong residents of the county.
