The following is taken from the blurb on the inner flap of the dust jacket: " ...the essays in Southern Businessmen and Desegregation trace the process of desegregation in fourteen southern cities. With each essay focusing on the experience of a different city, this volume investigates not only the well-known land struggles - such as the school desegregation crises in Little Rock (1957) and New Orleans (1960) and the Memphis sanitation strike (1968) that provided the background for the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. - but also such less spectacular instances of desegregation as those in Tampa, Norfolk, and Greensboro."
