On Jordan’s Banks

This chapter examines the families and community of African Americans living along the Ohio River. During the unsettled times after the Civil War, African Americans sought to create new ways of organizing their lives as well as their relations with whites and soon the relations between African Americans and whites on both shores of the river assumed a form that would prevail well into the twentieth century. The new order was founded upon family, church, fraternal and benevolent associations, recreation, and schools.

Keywords:   families, community life, African Americans, Ohio River, whites, church, fraternal associations, schools
