Most histories of the civil rights movement focus on places like Birmingham, Selma, and Montgomery. But battles were also fought on the streets of Pittsburgh, Detroit, Boston and Minneapolis-St. Paul, where many whites believed that the absence of explicit segregation implied the absence of racial inequality. Join historian Thomas Sugrue as he explores the stories of Northern activists who challenge racial crises above the Mason-Dixon Line.

Thomas Sugrue is a professor at New York University and author of Sweet Land of Liberty: The Forgotten Struggle for Civil Rights in the North.

Lectures are offered at 10 am and 2 pm.
