Reconstruction| Episode 2 Preview

Hour three of the series examines the years 1877-1896, a transitional period that saw visions of a “New South” set the stage for the rise of Jim Crow and the undermining of Reconstruction’s legal and political legacy. Hour four looks at the turn of the century when white supremacy was ascendant and African Americans faced both physical and psychological oppression.
