Abstract Our histories of civil rights tend to focus on the South—on the dramatic struggles to desegregate public transportation, lunch counters, and schools in places like Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma, Alabama; Atlanta and Albany, Georgia; Jackson and Philadelphia,Mississippi. But the struggle for civil rights was just as consequential north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
