The last half of the 1800’s was a time of conflict because blacks wanted to be treated equal citizenship as the whites. This was a time of conflict of race and gender and equal citizenship amongst them all. The African Americans were brought here, forced into slavery, sold, and trade, as if they were livestock. Even though slaved were freed when the civil war ended in 1865, the conflict between the blacks and whites were still strong. Blacks still had no voice , and many whites still fought for them not to be treated as equal to whites. Segregation became the new slavery with modifications, like blacks had no land, education was limited, and property was destroyed. Even after blacks had fought for their rights and own place in society, with little success, however with their economic conditions and the Compromise of the 1877 this caused their success to diminish.
