Introduction to Black Life in the 1900's

(Photo credited to:

After the passing of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, the 1900's brought about many new changes to the perspectives of black life in America, specifically race relations. Many African-Americans sought to take advantage of the new opportunities they gained after the ending of slavery but would soon come to realize that with their new freedom would come many more years of hardship in their fight to gain basic human rights & equality. This site will serve as a deeper look in the motivations behind some of the largest racially motivated riots & protest that erupted during the 1900's, specifically in Kentucky and how we still continue to battle racism in "post-racial America."
