Entangled by White Supremacy

Janet G. Hudson

University Press of Kentucky

Since the majority of South Carolinians were African Americans, the whites constructed and protected the 1895 constitutional voting restrictions as wells as the Democratic primary that was composed of an all white entourage so that the African Americans would experience disfranchisement and the lack of political participation. Such a political system would entail further struggles for the black reformers. Although this system may somehow also constrain white reformers, the long-term effects of this political exclusion was believed to have contributed largely to educational and economic reform as perceived by the whites. The Democratic Party was made up of different factions that competed for influence and political office that were mainly comprised of those from the middle class. This chapter illustrates various efforts made in establishing a reform coalition headed by Coleman L. “Coley” Blease.
