Event description

Description

The abolitionist movement and the Underground Railroad's fight against slavery led to the Civil War. The Emancipation Proclamation, as well as the 13th, 14th, & 15th Amendments helped to form the period known as Reconstruction.

Join ASALH Detroit president and historian Jamon Jordan on this tour that highlights an era in which African Americans became Congressmen, governors, leaders, and institution builders. And learn how it was attacked and finally destroyed by white supremacists as they ushered the Jim Crow era with increased restrictions on voting rights, and the rise of lynching. This tour will take us right up to the period of the Great Migration.

And what does it all have to do with Detroit?
