Summary

The Reconstruction and Rise of Jim Crow describes the fallout of the Civil War, whose aftermath left the United States South angry and poor. This book details the struggles to decide how to deal with the newly freed slaves, through the years of Reconstruction, Jim Crow, sharecropping, and segregation. The storyline also sets the stage for the country’s next battle, which is between the Jim Crow laws and the 14th and 15th Amendments.

powerful and painful.

Made me more aware of the needed information after the Civil war. I enjoyed it.

Excellent quality, but lacking in quantity

The publishers of this audiobook delivered a well-written and cogent story for people like me who want a big-picture idea about this period. But as I'm paying a whole credit, I wish they would provide this book along with another title of their American history series. Please think about it!
