Abstract

Much attention is given to the role of the lunch counter in the years leading up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But what about the fast-food chain, which was rising to national prominence at the same time? Angela Jill Cooley addresses this question in an excerpt from her book, To Live and Dine in Dixie: The Evolution of Urban Food Culture in the Jim Crow South, forthcoming from the University of Georgia Press.
