Reconstruction Battles over Racial and Gender Equality

(p.109) 8 Reconstruction Battles over Racial and Gender Equality
Frederick Douglass

D. H. Dilbeck

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter covers the Reconstruction era, as Douglass shifted his focus from abolition to the crusade for true racial and gender equality. It explains how Douglass’s uncompromising call for full political and civil equality for racial minorities and women was inspired by his prophetic Christian faith. The chapter shows how Douglass adapted his pre-war faith to decidedly new social and political problems after the Civil War.
