This site offers a valuable case study with a good range of primary documents for linking race, geography, and economics in U.S. history. The sections on Delta blues music are also very useful for background or use with students.

Technical Remarks:

The use ads on this PBS educational site is very distracting and annoying.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes
