New volumes of Southern culture encyclopedia provide enlightenment


"This volume covers a scholarly field scarcely mentioned when the first Encyclopedia of Southern Culture made its appearance in 1989, demonstrating the development in short order of a very major field of scholarly inquiry. Some of us may know of Lumbees, Sephardic Jews, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Cherokees, Melungeons, Huguenots or Kickapoos, but it is unlikely that we know much about Chitimachas, Coushattas, Houmas, Igbos, Monacans, Yoruba or the controversial Cajun Coonasses."
