African American Life in Philadelphia

Here’s Professor Judy Giesberg of Villanova University again speaking about African-Americans in Philadelphia in the Civil War Era and in Reconstruction. This is a good presentation.

The video’s description reads, “Judith Giesberg talked about what life was like for African Americans in Philadelphia during and after the Civil War. She described how many former slaves took out newspaper ads to find family members.”
