The Bulletin

Today’s post is the first in an ongoing series compiling links related to news from in and around the US South. We hope these posts will provide space for lively discussion and debate regarding issues of importance to those living in and intellectually engaging with the US South. Without further ado, The Bulletin.


In the interest of continuing the conversation about Amendment One in North Carolina, I am adding a link to a wonderful piece by Barry Yeoman which was published after The Bulletin was posted. Barry's essay "Town and Country" offers a detailed analysis of the voting results. He argues that, counter to the claim made by many journalists that race and religion were central to the voting, the urban-rural divide best explains why the North Carolina electorate supported the Amendment.
