I have read that many of the North backs could read and write at the start of the Civil War. So did they attend segregation schools in most Northern states or were there large numbers of integrated schools in Northern states?

I know that in my home state of Michigan the Raisin Institute was said to be the first integrated school and did not open until Michigan became a state in 1837. So I assume that as a territory Muchigan schools were segregated. I am unsure how other states did this. Did most Nothern states have integrated schools? Is it safe to assume free black children went to segregated schools in most Southern states?
