(p.120) Chapter 5 Interracial Tension, 1919
Entangled by White Supremacy

Janet G. Hudson

University Press of Kentucky

November 11, 1918 marked victory as the Great War came to its end. Black reformers expected that oppressive constraints would be loosened, and that they would be rewarded for their loyalty, cooperation, and participation during wartime. However, the blacks became impatient as their alleged equality with the white reformers seemingly diminished, and the white reformers gradually retracted from the necessary race relations they had earlier established. The latter wanted to shift back quickly to the racial structure in which the whites were in social control. As such, the immediate postwar era signified a period of collision because of their contrasting interests. This chapter identifies the measures taken by both reformers in terms of subordination, political participation, and other such issues that resulted in postwar tension.
