In the early 1940s, all sorts of rumors about impending and presently occurring race wars were circulating throughout the South among white Southerners. Chapel Hill sociologist Howard W. Odum was so alarmed--and fascinated--by these rumors that he set out to collect and catalog them. First published in 1943 RACE AND RUMORS OF RACE documents Odum's findings.
