University of North Carolina Press

This chapter begins with Elsa Barkley Brown's vivid memory of the first Southern Conference on Women's History, sponsored by the Southern Association of Women Historians (SAWH). Brown had been on the program committee and worked alongside a group of black and white women historians committed to making sure this conference was an inclusive gathering—fully incorporating graduate students, emphasizing a wide range of women's histories, ensuring that not only SAWH members but also a wide range of historians of women were recognized and participated as presenters and commentators. Yet by the time Brown arrived in Spartanburg on the evening of the first day of the conference, tensions between black and white women were evident—a situation that only increased throughout the next several days.
