Most observers have assumed that school segregation in the United States was exclusively a southern phenomenon. Douglas has provided a solid summary of the fight for school integration in the North, and in doing so he has broadened our understanding of the struggle against racial segregation in America.

Jim Crow laws were a collection of state and local statutes that legalized racial segregation. At the start of the 1880s, big cities in the south were not wholly beholden to Jim Crow laws and black Americans found more leeway in them. This led to substantial black populations moving to the cities and, as the decade progressed, white city dwellers demanded more laws to limit opportunities for African Americans. Jim Crow laws spread around the south with even more force than previously. Public parks were forbidden for African Americans to enter, and theaters and restaurants were segregated.

Most observers have assumed that school segregation in the United States was exclusively a southern phenomenon. In fact, many northern communities, until recently, engaged in explicit "southern style" school segregation whereby black children were assigned to "colored" schools and white children to white schools. Davison Douglas examines why so many northern communities did engage in school segregation (in violation of state laws that prohibited such segregation) and how northern blacks challenged this illegal activity. He analyzes the competing visions of black empowerment in the northern black community as reflected in the debate over school integration.

Well-researched non-fiction book about the public education system during the segregation era. Covering the period from the Supreme Court decisions in Plessey v. Ferguson through Brown v. Board of Education, Davison Douglas paints a picture of the enormous inequity between African American and White schools, not just in the South, but in the North as well. For anyone who wants to understand more about race relations during the segregation era, particularly in light of the public schools, this book is a must-read.

Anyone who thinks that the South was the only place Jim Crow segregation was practiced should take a look at this book to discover that in places from Indiana to New Jersey there were in fact separate schools for whites and blacks well into the 20th century -- not legally mandated, but not legally prohibited by the states either. This book is clearly written and fascinating.

Rarely do I come across an author who can so unpretentiously weave primary and secondary sources into such an intriguingly learned and relevant social narrative.

Even in the enlightened antebellum North prejudice ignited the passions of Connecticut's tee totaling society in the form of Yale instructors and students railing against private colleges for blacks in their midst.

A must read for educators, historians, and caring people in general!
