The New Southern University

The epilogue takes us back to Frank Graham, briefly following efforts as an advocate for academic freedom and liberalism through the 1940s. World War II seemed to offer a new opportunity for progressives like Graham to push for quicker change in southern race relations away from a system of segregation that he now believed was inherently immoral. In response, Graham linked southern segregation to Nazism in his frequent public addresses. Graham's critics then retaliated as the rise of the Cold War gave them the opportunity to link his views on racial equality with communist ideology. Graham ended the decade being defeated in a bitter race for the U.S. Senate in which his opponent race-baited the now-former UNC president.
