From Civil War to Civil Rights: The African American Experience in Virginia

Emancipation and the end of the Civil War brought promises of equality for African Americans in Virginia and throughout the South. It took the better part of a century for those promises to begin to be realized. This program will identify and examine the effects of segregation and “Jim Crow” on life in Virginia for whites, African Americans, and American Indians. Students will also discuss the social and political events in Virginia linked to desegregation and Massive Resistance and their relationship to national history.
