John Selton Reed Minding the South

Season 7 Episode 716 | 27m 38s

For over three decades John Shelton Reed has been "minding" the South. He is the author or editor of thirteen books about the region. Despite his disclaimer concerning the formal study of Southern history, Reed has read widely and in depth about the South. His primary focus is upon Southerners’ present-day culture, but he knows that one must approach the South historically to understand it.
