Professor Kidada E. Williams will present, ‘I Don’t Know If I’ll Ever Be Over It’: African Americans in the War against Reconstruction’ on April 15, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Reconstruction is one of the most significant eras in American history. But Black people’s experiences in this era are among the most misunderstood and misrepresented aspects of this story. African Americans’ accounts of the other war, the one white southerners waged on Black families, create a portrait of what Black southerners did with freedom and the price white extremists made them pay for their success. Survivors’ searing recollections of the war after the Civil War bring to light the ways that the revolutionary experiment of Reconstruction did not just fail, as so many of us have been taught, but was violently overthrown and abandoned.
