This is the blog of me, Charles Kenneth Roberts, historian. I have published one book, The Farm Security Administration and Rural Rehabilitation in the South, which is about the Farm Security Administration and the rural South, from the University of Tennessee Press. I have published peer-reviewed journal articles and book reviews in Agricultural History, The Alabama Review, GATEways to Teacher Education, and the Southern Historian. My interview with Theodore Rosengarten is available in The Historian behind the History.
Other things I wrote: The Encyclopedia of Alabama pages for Carl Elliott, Patterson v. Alabama, Sheriff James G. “Jim” Clark, the Office of the Governor, and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
Right now, when I’m not teaching or doing some awful committee work, I’m making very slow progress on a project about Alabama politics in the Civil Rights era, trying to answer why white southern moderates and liberals failed so badly in the 1960s.
