This essay focuses on the passage of Winston-Salem’s segregation ordinance, the response of local African Americans, and the reasoning behind the state Supreme Court’s ruling against the ordinance. It shows middling whites feeling insecure when black tobacco factory workers moved into their neighborhoods; local black leaders doing little to protest the ordinance; and the court considering how the ordinance would affect local white leaders.
