Racial Composition of Congressional Districts and Support for Federal Voting Rights in the American South.
Black, Merle
Social Science Quarterly, v59 n3 p435-50 Dec 1978
Analyzes the transformation of southern Whites in the House of Representatives from opponents to supporters of federal protection of minority voting rights. Three periods are examined: prior to massive participation by Blacks (1957, 1960), during rapid expansion of the Black electorate (1965, 1969-79), and one decade after passage of the Voting Rights Act (1975).
