Professor Berrey’s research explores the relationship between racial practices and everyday culture in the twentieth-century U.S. His book, The Jim Crow Routine: Everyday Performances of Race, Civil Rights, and Segregation in Mississippi (UNC, 2015), uses the concept of performance to analyze daily racial practices and examine racial transformations in the Jim Crow and civil rights eras in Mississippi. He is currently researching amateur productions of blackface minstrel shows by schools, churches, and civic organizations in the U.S. from the 1920s to the 1970s.
Berrey teaches courses on African American history and culture and on race and culture in the U.S. South.
