The introduction discusses the wide range of qualitative methods used including life history interviews, photo elicitation, and archival research. It introduces the reader to the individuals whose life stories unfold throughout the book. It also situates the book in an emerging scholarly literature on the northern civil rights movement and “new suburban history,” which examines minority and working class life in suburbia positing that a “city-suburban dichotomy” may not be as significant as previously determined.
