Listen to the interview below
Guest host Jennifer Berkshire interviews Elizabeth McRae, author of Mothers of Massive Resistance: White Women and the Politics of White Supremacy. The book digs into White women's segregationist politics from the 1920s-1970s which stretched across the nation, overlapping with and shaping the rise of the New Right. We chat with McRae about the history of these mothers and how they laid the foundation for the new Jane Crow.
