Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow Display at Central Library
The Central Library in downtown Buffalo has a TON of events this week, including a display on Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow!
The Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow display will be up for the duration of Black History Month.
"Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal under the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow." ~ Central Library
