All Eyes Are Upon Us is a revelatory history of race in the Northeast during the twentieth century. It shows a region, and a nation, at war with itself - pulled toward its higher ideals of democracy and freedom, yet bedeviled by racism and segregation. This story of the Robinsons' quest to purchase a home illuminates the larger conflict at the heart of the North.

Jason Sokol is an American historian. He is currently an assistant professor of history at the University of New Hampshire, and has held fellowships at Harvard, Penn, and Cornell. He is also the author of There Goes My Everything: White Southerners in the Age of Civil Rights.
