Sleeping in Dixie’s Feather Bed: Growing Up White in the Segregated South

by Lou Ellen Watts

The author of this book now lives in Franklin, Indiana. But her growing-up years were spent in the deep South: South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and Louisiana. This book tells the story of her odyssey through a segregated culture.

This is the story of how the Civil Rights movement came to a working class southern belle and started her on a different course.
