White Over Black

This chapter focuses on the time shortly after the revolution, when Americans began haphazardly but with detectable acceleration to legislate Negroes into an ever-shrinking corner of the American community. Indications that Negroes were becoming more than ever walled off from white men fell into a pattern which coincided, roughly, with patterns of change in the economics of southern agriculture, national and sectional feeling, antislavery, and fear of slave revolt. For ten years after the war there were some signs of relaxation, but then came a trend which included tighter restrictions upon slaves and especially free Negroes, separation of the races at places of social gathering, and the founding of all-Negro churches. The American interracial mold was hardening into its familiar antebellum shape.

Keywords:   revolution, Negroes, American community, white men, southern agriculture, antislavery
