Black Activism During the Civil War Professor Douglas Egerton talked about black activism during the Civil War and into the early years of Reconstruction. He spoke about the series of conventions organized by activists in both northern and southern states in which African Americans met to organize their fight for equal rights and the right to vote.

“The Black Activism and the Wars of Reconstruction” was a part of the American Civil War Museum’s 2016 symposium “The Road from Appomattox: Political Violence, Military Conflict, and National Reunion,” a day-long symposium held at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. close
