ABSTRACT
The article presents Carl T. Rowan's imagination and curiosity for the race relations. Rowan, a Negro author of "South of Freedom", journeyed to his native region to find the new meaning of the race relations, in 1951. In Georgia, he observed that the South still worships its old god, segregation, but with growing doubt and defection. At the end of his ride, he found it hazardous to try to buy a newspaper in the "white" waiting room. He found university students living and working side by side without racial discrimination.
