Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

I think she qualifies.

Given that it is a romance novel, not a textbook. Her life was immersed in southern lore and lifestyle, spending much time in association with those who lived the War times or during Reconstruction. Plenty of field study.

I could have said historical instead of scholarly.

Your comments below are on point. There has always been pressure to whitewash southern attitudes regarding the War. Inheriting a culture of treating people like cattle is hard to face down. Today in Germany, the holocaust deniers keep popping up like gophers.

But the fact that it took another hundred years for Civil Rights and Anti-Segregation tells me that not much has changed in the hardcore South. I grew up part time in Mississippi, and vividly recall the separate toilets, sitting areas, fountains, ... all of it.
