Paternalism Emerges

(p.143) Chapter Five Paternalism Emerges
Deliver Us from Evil

Lacy K. Ford, Jr.

Oxford University Press

The emergence of the paternalist movement from its humble late-18th-century origins became a potent insurgency in the lower South. Paternalism's advocates faced twin challenges: they had to both persuade slaves to accept Christianity and convince whites that paternalism was an effective method of slave control. This chapter charts paternalism's rise during the Second Great Awakening and its emergence initially in areas such as the Carolina and Georgia Lowcountry, which had a network of well-established churches.
