White Supremacy as a Nationalist Ideology in American History

Lecture Description

The lecture makes the case that white supremacy was a white nationalist ideology in the South from the origins of the United States until 1965. It takes issue with most of the tendency to view America as lacking a nationalism, especially one based on white belonging, revealing how federalism allowed Southerners (a white ethnic group) to govern themselves and all who lived in what they considered to be there homeland.
