Harper presents a thoroughly researched and well documented scholarly study that helps explain why the southwestern Ozarks is such a white region of the country Lynching occurred in many places across the South and obviously into the Midwest Many white people who had lived during the time of slavery whether they actually owned slaves or not resented the new autonomy of black people in their communities during Restoration Over the decades resentment evolved into a fear While blacks may not have been true economic social or even political competitors in the region whites viewed blacks as a threat to their wives daughters and police officers Obviously much of the fear centered on the perceived sexual predation of black men It was believed that women were not safe in the country or the city so long as African American men roamed freeHowever Harper goes beyond the acts of horrible white mob violence to explore why African Americans were driven out of communities often at the same time lynching took place Similar action was taken in other parts of the country Forsyth County in north central Georgia comes to mind Other areas of north Georgia especially in the Appalachian foothills still have small black populations to this day In the Ozarks and in the north Georgia mountains the economy in the early 20th century was primarily subsistence farming which did not reuire much labor outside the extended family of the farmer As Harper observes This was in contrast to the black majority regions of the South where inexpensive and readily available black labor composed a significant segment of the local economy making African Americans indispensable to local white employers One could easily make the same argument in recent decades for why white farmers have not been so anxious to deport undocumented Latinos from regions of the South where industrial agriculture is dominant and depends on vast numbers of inexpensive laborers This is a fine addition to American history and African American studies Harper s book joins recent work on lynching by prominent African American scholars Highly recommended

It doesn t feel right to classify this book as a favorite as its subject is so horrifying and its treatment is so detailed that frankly it s not an easy read But White Man s Heaven The Lynching and Expulsion of Blacks in the Southern Ozarks 1894 1909 is definitely a book to be read and reckoned withThe book draws on copious original sources testimony newspaper accounts witness reports court records and to detail the circumstances and aftermath of lynchings in the Missouri towns of Pierce City Joplin and Springfield and the Arkansas town of Harrison to portray the life and racial situation of the time It s a grisly picture one from which author Kimberly Harper does not flinchThe story repeats itself in town after town a crime that excites racial antagonism public officials who are either indifferent or sympathetic to the mob a lynching in the town suare and the subseuent intimidation of the rest of the black population In reading these accounts what struck me was the pervading and casual racism of the time But it shouldn t have come as a surprise because I remember the Ozarks of my youth seventy years later as a place where racist attitudes were openly and casually expressedWhen I was young I took the whiteness of the Ozarks for granted It was simply a condition of the locale But after reading White Man s Heaven I realize that the racial homogeneity of the Ozarks was not a natural condition but an enforced one in which entire towns were depopulated of their African American population often through violent means The word pogrom comes to mindThis book is not one to be read for pleasure but it s a valuable read It was published by the University of Arkansas Press but for some reason when I do a search on the UAP website it comes up not found It s available elsewhere though

This book is an excellent history of this era of racist violence in the Ozarks and ties together a series of events in Pierce City Joplin and Springfield Mo and Harrison Ar It seems well researched and is mostly uite detailed in its attempts to create a full timeline and picture of each city s event including a sense of race relations long before each event and a sense of the long term repercussions The author also attempts to tie these individual events into the bigger picture of the violence and black migration following reconstruction and mid jim crow and the growing sentiment of the lost cause narrative I know these narratives are not uniue to this area but the author attempts to localize them in her analysis and does a good job Due to limitations and different availability of different resources in each city the analysis and details are not always consistent from chapter to chapter Only one newspaper survives from Pierce City for instance This just provides some starting points for the next researcher But it does make the book a little uneven That s really my only criticism Overall I d highly recommend it for anyone who wants to understand about the history of this region and obviously for anyone who wants to delve into the history of race relations here We learned about the great migration in school as if it were a voluntary search for better jobs Didn t really cover the fact that people were driven from their homes communities and successful lives by violence and threats worse than death
