Unlike most Chinese-American studies which focus on large urban concentrations sustained by continuous immigration, this study centers on a small Chinese enclave located in a rural Southern biracial society. It focuses upon three generations of Chinese undergoing social change in an area within the state of Mississippi known as the Delta. This isolated group of people, having little contact with other U.S. Chinese communities, remained nearly intact through the first two generations. Now great changes have caused the third generation to leave the enclave and to relinquish many ethnic traditions.
An Outline of Southern History for Unreconstructed Southerners
Author: Leslie R. Tucker
Know your Southern history so that you can help to defend it. Our heritage is too important to leave to Yankee and Scalawag revisionist. In America today most are proud to boast of their cultural background whether that be Irish, African, Hispanic or whatever. One of the largest segments of the American population is attacked for displaying pride in their heritage, those with Confederate ancestors. We are immediately classified as racist if we display the battle flag that the Southern soldier carried as he defended his home and family from invasion. We have made some progress in convincing others that our flag is meant to symbolize heritage not hate but we have further to go. The author is one Southerner who feels that his ancestors were like their grandfathers before them, simply fighting for their right to self government. They did nothing to be pardoned for and we do nothing wrong in being proud of them just as other Americans take pride in their ancestors. The best way to do this is to become familiar with our history. In recent years many academic historians have joined the attacks of our Confederate heritage. We must not leave our history to be told by Yankee and Scalawag revisionist historians. Everyone who feels the same way should read this outline of Southern history for Unreconstructed Southerners.

PORTRAITS OF MAGNOLIAS In the Shadow of Elvis tells the story of a small Southern town in the 1950s as told through the lives of its teenagers. Among them was a group of girls known as The Twelve (the Magolias), one of whom, Margie King, looks back on this innocent time when most of the entertainment was self generated, and neighbors were friends who relied on each other and knew everyone else's business--although not everyone knew the mystery of the ruins of an antebellum mansion or what happened after a local lawyer became governor of the state. Offstage is Elvis Presley, who before he was famous was influencing the lives of the town's youth as his voice reached down into the Delta over the airwaves from Memphis and the teenagers sped up to Graceland to see what they could find out about the daily life of The King.

The world of Magnolia Le Guin, like that of countless farm women, was defined by and confined to home and family. Born in 1869 into the rural, white, agrarian society of Georgia's central piedmont, she raised eight children virtually on her own, yet never in her life ventured farther than thirty miles from her birthplace. Her situation, however extreme, was not unique in her day. What distinguished Le Guin was her love of writing, her need to write about being a wife and mother--despite a daunting workload and burden of responsibilities that left her with little free time or energy. In a plain, idiomatic style, these diaries detail some of the most trying, but nonetheless fulfilling, years of her life. At the same time, A Home-Concealed Woman (her own self-descriptive phrase) provides a firsthand view of the hardships of subsistence farming, the material culture of rural society, and the codes to which Le Guin as a white woman, a southerner, and an evangelical Christian adhered. The most striking feature of Le Guin's world is that it was confined almost entirely to the indoors, from the bedrooms where her children were born and where her parents lay ill and died to the stove room where the daily meals were cooked and cleared. Her husband's prominence in their small community and the size of their extended families meant that Le Guin hosted an endless flow of callers and overnight guests--more than one hundred in the summer of 1906 alone. Managing an already busy household under these conditions so occupied her time that she treasured every respite: "I was truly glad when I felt the sprinkling of the rain. I was so glad I couldn't content myself indoors washing dishes, sweeping floors, making beds, etc etc, so I just postponed those things and churning too awhile and betook myself out in the misty rain with a new brushbroom and swept a lot of this large yard and inhaled the sweet air scented with rain-settling dust." Less idyllic sentiments also fill Le Guin's diaries, for the anger and anxiety she could not publicly express found a voice in their pages: "I feel rebellious once in awhile at my lot--so much drudgery and so much company to cook for and in meantime my own affairs, my own children, my little baby--all going neglected." Though condescending outbursts about her hired help reveal Le Guin's racial attitudes, her endemic prejudice is tempered by her many expressions of genuine concern for individual blacks close to her family. As writer Ursula K. Le Guin suggests in her foreword, the diary may be the best suited literary form for approximating "the actual gait of people's lives." In Magnolia Le Guin's diary, prayerful entreaties for strength and guidance mingle with daily news about her family, providing a constant background against which major events such as births and deaths, holidays and harvests take place. The reader's admiration for Le Guin will grow as the details of her life emerge and accumulate.
