African Americans in Post-Civil War America

9781490366753: African Americans in Post-Civil War America

African Americans have faced racial prejudice and discrimination since the first captive Africans were sold into slavery in the American colonies in 1619. Despite being freedpeople, and later becoming citizens, they have continued to face anti-black racism continuously through the period since the Emancipation Proclamation. Although America has elected an African American president in the twenty-first century, African Americans still face racial discrimination in American society. It is to be hoped that racial prejudices may be erased in the future, and that racial discrimination may end. African Americans have been free in America for 148 years. It is my hope that is does not take that long from now for people of all races to be truly equal in American society.
