I don't think you can analyze this independently of the national politics. In the 50's and 60's the South was solidly democratic although the DixieCrats as we called them then generally opposed the civil rights agenda. A coalition of Republicans and northern Democrats passed the legislation. Subsequently, the Republicans took over the South and their agenda changed as their base changed.
