Eric Anderson clarifies a confusing, uneven period of promise from
the emancipation to the disfranchisement of black Americans. He
examines regional and national history in his record of one of the
most remarkable centers of black political influence in the late
nineteenth century--North Carolina's second congressional district.
From its creation in 1872 as a result of gerrymandering to its
collapse in the extremism of 1900, the "black second" produced
increasingly effective black leaders in public office, from
postmasters to prosecuting attorneys and congressmen.
