Hats Off! to NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern whose essay "A Fair Dixie Classic" appears in South Writ Large. "Dixie—to me—became the best of the South with none of the worst: where y’all truly meant all; where our neighborliness encompassed everyone and purified our politics; where we recognized, admitted, affirmed, and celebrated the common cultural heritage of black and white; where those of us from, in, and of the South were transfigured, redeemed of our sins but still ourselves."
