The period from 1890 to 1920 is often characterized as the low point of African American history. During those thirty years white supremacists established Jim Crow in the South. African Americans were disenfranchised, isolated and demeaned through segregations, and terrorized by lynching and other forms of violence. Yet during that dark time not only did African Americans keep hope alive, they forged new political weapons and promoted a new consciousness that became foundations for later success in the struggle for civil rights. African American women were central to these efforts.
