Deep South

Map of the Deep South: traditional states are in dark red, while East Texas, West Tennessee, and North Florida are sometimes counted

The Deep South is a cultural and geographic subregion of the American South, consisting of the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The term "Deep South" refers to states where cotton production, plantations, and slave societies were prominent during the pre-American Civil War era, and the region was once predominantly inhabited by African-Americans, but the Great Migration of the early 20th century saw a decrease in the African-American population. Today, the Deep South is often associated with the most concentrated form of the "Dixie"/southern identity, including southern accents, plaid shirts and jeans, hospitality, devout Christianity, and conservatism, with racism unfortunately being a recurring theme in the south.
