Although the white reformers embraced the various economic opportunities that were presented to them through the mobilization of the nation after the war, these opportunities also brought about instability to the white supremacy. Also, the federal government's intervention on several different local issues affected how the whites dominated the then current racial relationships. In spite of experiencing disfranchisement and segregation, the black reformers served as agents of change and were able to attain the required leverage during wartime for posing threats to white supremacy. This chapter describes how the postwar black migration initiated various opportunities for the black Carolinians outside the south and somehow jeopardized the economic control scheme of the whites. The migration generally served as a means for the blacks to escape white control.
