From the 1890s to the Great Depression

(p.299) Epilogue
On Jordan’s Banks

Darrel E. Bigham

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on African American settlement along the Ohio River. After emancipation, African Americans created families, built homes and neighborhoods, established churches and benevolent organizations, formed schools, and developed community rituals. By the mid-1870s through to the mid-1880s, racial separation became prevalent and patterns of employment, housing, education, religious and cultural life, and race relations were well in place. This was known as Jim Crow. This chapter highlights the progress made by African Americans from the 1890s to the Great Depression.

Keywords:   African Americans, Ohio River, racial separation, Jim Crow, race relations, cultural life, Great Depression
