Deference & Violence in Danville

Deference & Violence in Danville

(p.103) 4 Deference & Violence in Danville
Before Jim Crow

Jane Dailey

University of North Carolina Press

After emancipation and before the codification of the white supremacist South, conflicts arose between blacks and whites over public behavior. This chapter examines how African Americans asserted their claim as civic equals through their behavior in urban public spaces and how some whites responded to such behavior. It explores the violence in the Danville Riot and argues that conflicts over civil behavior between whites and blacks intersect with other social and political developments.

Keywords:   emancipation, codification, civic equality, public spaces, Danville Riot, civil behavior
