This chapter examines the situation of African Americans on the free side of the Ohio River. The lives of African Americans on the north shore were severely restricted, since most whites in the lower Midwest shared the cultural values of Negrophobes across the river. They occupied the lowest rung on the occupational ladder and resided in inferior housing. They were also not allowed to vote, to serve on juries or in the militia, and to testify against whites in court.

Keywords:   African Americans, Ohio River, whites, Negrophobes, inferior housing, militia, cultural values
