About the Author

Susan Tucker is curator of books and records at the Newcomb College Center for Research on Women at Tulane University in New Orleans.


This collection of oral history narratives explores the attitudes and experiences of black women who worked as domestics in the segregated South and their white women employers. Although the narratives cover 1900 to the beginning of the Civil Rights era, the interviews were conducted in the 1980s. The memories, therefore, are recounted in light of the changes wrought by the intervening years. Tucker analyzes the complex social patterns of the times, the women's lifestyles, and the effect of selective memory on their stories. A fascinating study of a hitherto neglected area of social history. Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, Ohio

"Thank you to Susan Tucker, author of the book Telling Memories Among Southern Women, whose beautiful oral accounts of domestics and their white employers took me back to a time and place that is long gone." (in The Help)--Kathryn Stockett
