A coalition of blacks and unions formed the basis of postwar American liberalism that articulated the principles of economic and racial equality. But in the 1960s, this coalition began to fray over issues of employment discrimination. The divergence between the two souls of liberalism—economic justice represented by the labor movement and racial justice represented by the civil rights movement—helps explain the resurgence of conservatism in the U.S. that followed.
