Reforming Jim Crow

Kimberley Johnson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores how southern African Americans' quest for social citizenship dovetailed with their renewed insistence on the restoration of their political citizenship. Education politics and the managed race relations of Jim Crow reform had created and sustained a dense network of organizations and institutions, including civic groups and voters' leagues, led by and for African Americans. The presence of these institutions and organizations did not presume unanimity; sharp disagreements remained within the African American community over tactics and goals.
