How did discrimination against African Americans in the North differ from discrimination in the South?

My answer: In the North, public facilities there not segregated. However, blacks could not get housing in white neighborhoods and usually were denied jobs. But, despite differing somewhat from the South, Northern whites still discriminated against blacks, and anti-black feelings among whites sometimes led to violence, similar to the violence African Americans faced in the South.

  1. Right. Also -- in the South -- segregated parks, schools, drinking fountains, public transportation were enforced by law. In the North, it was customs, not laws, that enforced what segregation there was. White violence against blacks was much more common in the South.
