Segregation: The Inner Conflict in the South by William Clark

First published in 1956, Segregation is a collection of Robert Penn Warren's informal conversations with southerners in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. Warren, who in his own writings often explored the theme of race in American life, traveled through his native region to talk with scores of individuals—taxi drivers, NAACP leaders, members of White Citizens groups, college students, preachers—to report their responses to the Court's decision.

This is a great book to read. Segregation is difficult to understand but the author does a great job explaining this remaining conflict. It's not gone but it's a lot better than it used to be.
