Key Question: How did segregation shape life in the North

Examine the section called “The Northern Promised Land that Wasn’t”.

Discussion Questions:

  • What kinds of problems did black activists like Rosa Parks highlight about the North?
  • Was Northern segregation different from Southern segregation? If so, how?
  • Why did the Detroit Uprising of 1967 take place?
    • What were some of the events that happened during the uprising that also indicated that segregation and racism existed in the North?
  • How did Rosa Parks and other black activists resist segregation and racism in Detroit and the North more broadly?
