Listening to Color: Blacks and Whites in Aberdeen, North Carolina is a history of life in a small rural town from the late 19th century to the present. The author interviewed individuals about their experiences with race when schools were segregated as well as during and after desegregation. She also uses census records, local newspapers and unpublished papers in the telling of life lived in black and white. The study further explores the phenomenon of municipal gerrymandering called "underbounding," where towns leave low-wealth minority communities outside their limits, as well as the continuing struggle for racial justice.
