This exhibition at the New-York Historical Society chronicles the struggle that black Americans faced in the 50 years after the Civil War. Timed to mark the 150th anniversary since the passing of the 14th Amendment, the exhibition is organized on a timeline between the end of the Civil War and the end of World War I. It shows the struggles that African-Americans faced when fighting for equality, and the opposition to black advancement in our country. Photographs, artifacts, artwork and media on display tell the story and help viewers understand this extraordinarily important part of our history and how it impacts our culture today.
