2 The escalation of segregation in the South began immediately after the Civil War.

3 The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, along with the two Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875 and the various Enforcements Acts of the early 1870s, curtailed the ability of southern whites to formally deprive blacks of their civil rights.

Other pioneers would take up the torch of freedom and carry on the challenge.

46 Segregation is evil because it scars the soul of both the segregated and the segregator…. It gives the segregated a false sense of inferiority and it gives the segregator a false sense of superiority. …It does something to the soul….this is why segregation is utterly evil and utterly un-Christian. It substitutes an "I/It" relationship for the "I/Thou" relationship. Martin Luther King Jr.
