"This book argues that racism and white supremacist attitudes in the North, and not just the opposition of Andrew Johnson, blocked the adoption of Black suffrage (for men) in 1865. The virulent, racist tactics of the Democratic Party, as well as racism among a minority of Republicans and the small size of the northern Black population, helped explain why the vigorous efforts of northern Blacks, southern Blacks, abolitionists, and Radical Republicans did not succeed"
