Aftermath of Slavery to Reconstruction

Here’s Professor Shawn Leigh Alexander of the University of Kansas delivering a lecture on what happened after slavery’s end.

The video’s description reads, “Shawn Leigh Alexander spoke about the era in between the end of slavery and the beginning of segregation. Professor Alexander talked about the failed Civil Rights Act of 1875, the Supreme Court ‘s 1896 ‘separate but equal’ ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson, and African American journalist Ida B. Wells work to expose the horrors of lynching.”

It’s a pretty decent lecture, but he does seem to jump around in a few parts.
