Cassanello brings to light many of the reasons Jacksonville, like Birmingham, Alabama, and other cities throughout the South, continues to struggle with its contentious racial past.

What defines a city's public space? Who designates such areas, who determines their uses, and who gets to use them? Today's "Occupy" movement has brought widespread attention to these issues, but Robert Cassanello demonstrates that such questions have been part of urban life for more than a century. Cassanello brings to light many of the reasons Jacksonville, like Birmingham, Alabama, and other cities throughout the South, continues to struggle with its contentious racial past.

Robert Cassanello interestingly applies theories of urban public space from scholars like Jurgen Habermas to Jacksonville and offers a new interpretation of its New South racial experience. Post-1865 Jacksonville saw a fairly quick economic revival that resulted in a growing freedmen population. What the author terms "democratized spaces" existed in schools, churches, and on the streets of the town

The story of the rise of Jim Crow in Jacksonville, Florida is in many ways illustrative of the challenges facing . This hostility to black political agency extended to all aspects of public life in Jacksonville, with each reaction forcing blacks further from power and from view.

The story of the rise of Jim Crow in Jacksonville, Florida is in many ways illustrative of the challenges facing newly emancipated African Americans. Robert Cassanello’s To Render Invisible: Jim Crow and Public Life in New South Jacksonville (University Press of Florida, 2013) explores this dynamic in rich detail, helping further our understanding of the post Civil War but pre- Civil Rights era in the South. Robert was kind enough to speak with me. I hope you enjoy.

Winner of the Florida Historical Society Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Award “Covering a compelling local history, deeply imbricated with state and national events, To Render Invisible brings together dramatic stories of continuity and change, of gender and race, and of respectability and resistance in a brisk narrative lucidly informed by social theory.”—David Roediger, author of The Wages of Whiteness “Carefully develops an original argument drawing from several theoretical perspectives to make the claim that African Americans in Jacksonville were able to continue to struggle for justice and ‘public space’ even after a wave of white supremacy engulfed the city as well as the state.”—Paul Ortiz, author of Emancipation Betrayed “Well written, clearly and logically organized, and built upon a foundation of deep research in primary sources, including newspapers, Freemen’s bureau records, official documents and personal papers.”—Louis Kyriakoudes, author of The Social Origins of the Urban South What defines a city’s public space? Who designates such areas, who determines their uses, and who gets to use them? Robert Cassanello uses rough-and-tumble nineteenth-century Jacksonville as both backdrop and springboard to explore social transformation in Florida and the South. When free black men in the city were first given the right to vote, conservative lawmakers made concerted efforts to drive them out of white public spaces. They attempted to make the public sphere a white domain by rendering blacks voiceless—invisible—in the public square. In response, a black counterpublic developed, flourishing clandestinely at times and openly challenging racism in the public sphere at others. Fortified by the theories of Henri Lefebvre, David Harvey, and Jürgen Habermas, To Render Invisible is the first book to focus on the tumultuous emergence of African American public life in Jacksonville between Reconstruction and the 1920s. Robert Cassanello brings to light many of the reasons Jacksonville, like Birmingham, Alabama, and other cities throughout the South, continues to struggle with its contentious racial past.
