Further, this presentation discusses how the forms of both white racism and black resistance differed based on the regional battlegrounds of the Midwest, Northeast, West Coast, and Border South. This webinar is presented by Clarence Lang as part of the History Check-In​ webinar series, a partnership between the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the Organization of American Historians (OAH).
