Question and answer
What positive changes occurred for blacks during the Reconstruction years?
With Reconstruction, slaves were freed and although there were supposed to be radical reforms that would grant them equality, [ racism persisted and some argue that the anti-slavery goals of the Reconstruction were not fully realized until the Civil Rights era in the 1950s and 1960s when African Americans were finally granted full rights enjoyed by whites rather than the “separate but equal”
clause that emerged from Plessy versus Ferguson.Johnson vetoed passage of a renewal of a new Freedman’s Bureau, which had served as a positive organization for African Americans, which would have allowed free black war veterans to vote. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 would have guaranteed blacks protection and equality yet again; Johnson stepped in and vetoed this as well. ]
