On Jordan’s Banks

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the population and residential patterns of African Americans on the north shore of the Ohio River after the American Civil War. The war brought unprecedented change to the former slave states as slaves were freed and ex-slaves moved to new environs. The African Americans settled in distinctive racial clusters that laid the basis for twentieth-century ghettos where they later encountered new challenges relating to whites and in dealing with the vagaries of freedom.
