How free were the black in the north? The blacks in the north were limited to few political rights and only a hand full of states would allow them to vote. they suffered from racial prejudice and could not attend churches of other color
Litwick,1961 explains the political and judicial rights in 1860 for blacks. They show the sides of the country and show if black males had rights to voting and jury duty or not. it also says that by 1830s all adult males could vote.
Mackey,1859 is mainly talking about how blacks were free in the north but how the whites didn’t really want to interact with them.they say that blacks should not be slave but should not be on the same level as whites. That they should not be social with whites. but also should be free from enslavement.
