Was urbanization crucial to southern life after the war?

I absolutely think Urbanization of the south was necessary for any further advancement made after the war. Although the problems of segregation still existed up through the 1970's, the south made laws to try an aid the residents in believing it was a good thing to make these changes. They still however, were reluctant to give blacks jobs and many things were segregated like buses, movies, hospitals, etc. until 1954. This change from an agricultural based money system to an industrial based money system, helped define the new ways of the south and also helped move forward past old southern ways which were unhealthy for America today.
