(p.1) Introduction
Before Jim Crow

Jane Dailey

University of North Carolina Press

The Readjuster Party, an independent coalition of black and white Republicans and white Democrats, was the most successful interracial democratic political movement in the postemancipation South. The Readjusters were an institutional force that promoted and protected African American civil and political rights such as citizenship, suffrage, officeholding, and jury service. This book discusses the attempts to establish white supremacy and suppress African American participation in politics, and the formation of independent coalition parties in the South. Focusing on the Readjuster Party, the book is mainly concerned with how Virginians formed ideas about race and how these ideas functioned politically.

Keywords:   Readjuster Party, Republicans, Democrats, Readjusters, citizenship, suffrage, officeholding, jury service, politics, coalition parties
