Biografie (woord)

Donald G. Mathews has taught at Duke and Princeton Universities, as well as at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He has studied and written about religion and the South for over fifty years, publishing three books and over thirty articles. He is the author of Religion in the Old South (1979) and co-author of Sex, Gender, and the Politics of ERA (1993).


Advance praise: 'This book presents a searing and deeply personal story that probes the enduring legacies of Christian fervor and racial injustice in US History. Mathews does not look away in the face of racial violence, and neither should we.' Laurie Maffly-Kipp, Washington University, St. Louis
