Abstract

This is a study of the work of the very widely-cited and yet under-appreciated white Georgian sociologist, Thomas Jackson Woofter, Jr., who worked for various phases and organisations of the interracial cooperation movement between his graduation from the University of Georgia in 1912 and his secondment from the University of North Carolina to the federal government during the New Deal. Woofter tried to widen the scope of research and teaching on race in the south, campaigned against lynching, organised southern interracial committees and undertook the first major study of black life in American cities since the work of W. E. B. Du Bois in Philadelphia in the 1890s.
