Rate this:
Author David K. Fremon traces the history of racial discrimination from the end of the Civil War through the Jim Crow era of segregation. Highlighting the efforts of both blacks and whites to promote racial equality in the face of violent attempts to preserve white supremacy, Fremon shows how segregation made the South a caste system. After years of enduring separate facilities--including water fountains, telephone books, hospitals, and cemeteries--for whites and blacks, Fremon shows how African Americans and their white supporters were eventually able to win the battle for equal rights.
