Reconstruction and the Origins of Jim Crow

Thursday, Aug. 11 - 7 p.m. Zoom Conference

Reconstruction is a critical period in American history, and also among the most misunderstood. Join Dr. Kate Masur as she discusses the challenges Americans faced after the abolition of slavery, the era’s bold effort to create a multi-racial democracy, and the fierce opposition that ultimately brought that experiment down. In conjunction with the exhibition Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow.
