Sintesi dell'editore

The Reconstruction and Rise of Jim Crow describes the fallout of the Civil War, whose aftermath left the United States South angry and poor. This book details the struggles to decide how to deal with the newly freed slaves, through the years of Reconstruction, Jim Crow, sharecropping, and segregation. The storyline also sets the stage for the country’s next battle, which is between the Jim Crow laws and the 14th and 15th Amendments.

Excellent quality, but lacking in quantity

The publishers of this audiobook delivered a well-written and cogent story for people like me who want a big-picture idea about this period. But as I'm paying a whole credit, I wish they would provide this book along with another title of their American history series. Please think about it!

ENDS APOLOGETICALLY

After cogently and interestingly presenting the real human and political reasons why we still have not overcome the racial divide the authors end with a ‘put yourself in the Southerner’s shoes’ flip flop they conclude by encouraging the reader to empathize wit the discriminatory violent murders of Black citizens

Pleasantly surprised

This is a fairly short read. Very informative in regards to what happened after the Civil War.
I learned in this book how reconstruction lead to Jim Crow laws.
The authors did a good job in telling an honest and unbiased perspective of this time in American history.

Sad but interesting history

I really appreciate how this piece went into detail as to the "why" of certain actions and the "how" it affected not only blacks, but poor whites as well as the country as a whole.

very informative

I learned some of this in high school, but not nearly enough of this book had to offer. So much information.

Maybe reconsider wording?

Great overview of history. My one critique is that, while I’m new to educating myself about how terrible white America has always been to BIPOC, I have been made aware that while “Black” and “Black people” are appropriate terms for discussing issues of race, the term “blacks” is not. It appears often in here.

Informative

Great introduction, looking forward to understanding to digging into the topic some more. Fortunately we had so many willing to fight, and die, for freedom.

Reconstruction is a misnomer

Reality was how to keep people of color oppressed after the civil war. Glad to know Jim Crow was a comedy show that stereotyped and segregated African Americans to unequal status.

Fairly Accurate

Twas good, but narrator kept putting me to sleep. Suggestion: listen to this title @ 1.15-1.25 speed. He actually sounds like he's still breathing then, lol.

Just more white history

Not going to go back and listen, but pretty sure there was one (if any) black name dropped through the entire read. Just the white perspective. Why is the black voice still underrepresented in a book trying to demystify the reconstruction era and why are we protecting the listeners from the atrocity people of color went through during these racist times?

Abe Lincoln's assassination being "one of America's greatest tragedies". He was a white supremacists. The book managed to defend the racism of the past over and over again, while acknowledging that the period was problematic.

Once again, biooc experiences and voices have been left out of history to make place for white guilt.
