Post-Reconstruction Suffrage Restrictions in Tennessee: A New Look at the V. O. Key Thesis
J. Morgan Kousser analyzes suffrage restrictions enacted in post-Reconstruction Tennessee. Although the leading authority on southern politics, the late V.O. Key, Jr., suggested that in many states legal restrictions came after suppression of the black vote had become a fait accompli through violence and social pressure, the Tennessee example shows that the Key thesis may require modification.
