Historians and other scholars interested in the politics of the African American freedom struggle since World War II have tended to concentrate on Democratic leaders such as Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson. The role of the Republican party on racial matters, however, has not received nearly as much attention despite widespread agreement that race has played a significant role in the success of the Republican party since the 1960s. My study aims to broaden understanding of the politics and policy of race since World War II by looking directly at how the Republican party approached civil rights and racial matters regarding African Americans.
