This anthology is a collection of key primary documents relating to desegregation in the United States. Topics discussed include the arguments offered for and against racial segregation, the role of federal, state and local governments, and the nature and importance of protest and civil disobedience. The final chapter is devoted to social and residential segregation in the North, which differed from the legally imposed segregation of the South.
"Desegregation is presented through various viewpoints, both pro and con, largely from the 1950s and '60s...This volume provides an organized format for understanding segregation and integration in the context of the legal and social arguments of the leaders and commentators of the times."
