(p.306) Conclusion
Entangled by White Supremacy

Janet G. Hudson

University Press of Kentucky

Historical contingency is manifested in how the African Americans exhibited activism related to the events of the World War I-era. The activists were not certain about the capacity of white supremacy to maintain power, and all of the efforts pursued by the black reformers were hated, feared, and resented by the white South Carolinians. The whites were always able to point out how these measures jeopardized white dominance in terms of social, political, and economic institutions. This concluding chapter summarizes how the hope for black reformers arose after the black soldiers came home and how traditional racial relationships were modified during wartime. Also, attention is drawn to the role of Cole Blease and to the various aspects of the issues associated with tax reforms and public school systems.

Keywords:   historical contingency, Cole Blease, tax reforms, public school system, white supremacy, activism, white reformers, black reformers
