Tumultuous Times: Reconstruction in North Carolina-New!

The Reconstruction period is frequently taught as a time of “failure,” when, in fact, Blacks and American Indians worked to create, strengthen, and form communities while seeking educational opportunities and exercising civil rights. Still, Reconstruction was imperfect and curtailed. Governments’ efforts were uneven in addressing the needs of formerly enslaved people and political, economic, and social backlash against Reconstruction ideals and policies flourished. Explore this period of history, which continues to have impact today.
