Children of the Changing South focuses on stories of formative experiences in the South from a variety of perspectives, a span of generations, and a breadth of geographic locations. The book's introduction asks the reader to view the memoirs through a lens of modern multiculturalism, rather than through a strictly historical lens, perhaps to gain perspective both on the movement and post-movement periods and on modern Southerners who grew up during a time when uncertainty about social and political matter was the norm.
