"So much of the G.I. Bill involved deference to state and local authorities," says Steven White, assistant professor of political science and author of World War II and American Racial Politics: Public Opinion, the Presidency and Civil Rights Advocacy. "Black southerners, even if they got benefits, they couldn’t go to the same colleges and universities. They couldn’t get the same jobs." White was quoted in the New York Times Magazine article "Returning From War, Returning to Racism." 07/30/20
