Fighting Racial Discrimination

Primary Sources of the Progressive Movement

Although African American slaves were freed after the Civil War, they still faced hardships through legislation (i.e., the Jim Crow laws in the South) that promoted segregation from whites and other forms of discrimination. Author Wayne Anderson documents the progressives’ efforts to overturn the local and state laws that continued the subjugation of African Americans. Young readers studying the civil rights movement should refer to this book as a valuable reference.
