    Description

    The Reconstruction and Rise of Jim Crow describes the fallout of the Civil War, whose aftermath left the United States South angry and poor. This book details the struggles to decide how to deal with the newly freed slaves, through the years of Reconstruction, Jim Crow, sharecropping, and segregation. The storyline also sets the stage for the country’s next battle, which is between the Jim Crow laws and the 14th and 15th Amendments.

    Excellent quality, but lacking in quantity

    The publishers of this audiobook delivered a well-written and cogent story for people like me who want a big-picture idea about this period. But as I'm paying a whole credit, I wish they would provide this book along with another title of their American history series. Please think about it!

    Pleasantly surprised

    This is a fairly short read. Very informative in regards to what happened after the Civil War.
    I learned in this book how reconstruction lead to Jim Crow laws.
    The authors did a good job in telling an honest and unbiased perspective of this time in American history.

    Sad but interesting history

    I really appreciate how this piece went into detail as to the "why" of certain actions and the "how" it affected not only blacks, but poor whites as well as the country as a whole.

    very informative

    I learned some of this in high school, but not nearly enough of this book had to offer. So much information.

    Informative

    Great introduction, looking forward to understanding to digging into the topic some more. Fortunately we had so many willing to fight, and die, for freedom.

    It is more like a collection of related essays, which is okay.

    The book is presented like a collection of related essays that lead to the reader to other topics for more in-depth learning. It is by no means a perfect and definitive work, but it is useful in that it leads the listener to topics to explore. Some listeners may be put-off by the retelling of events from various angle but for me it provided perspective and tied th essays together. I suspect this was the goal of the author; to simply put you on the path.

    ENDS APOLOGETICALLY

    After cogently and interestingly presenting the real human and political reasons why we still have not overcome the racial divide the authors end with a ‘put yourself in the Southerner’s shoes’ flip flop they conclude by encouraging the reader to empathize wit the discriminatory violent murders of Black citizens

    Maybe reconsider wording?

    Great overview of history. My one critique is that, while I’m new to educating myself about how terrible white America has always been to BIPOC, I have been made aware that while “Black” and “Black people” are appropriate terms for discussing issues of race, the term “blacks” is not. It appears often in here.

    okay coverage, not engaging, but quick & free.

    was worth a try and certainly not a bad synoptic overview for people unfamiliar with the period. just enough detail and reference to players to orient a student. perhaps a good starting point for future study and reading. free with membership, so why not.

    If you are familiar, don’t bother

    If you know somewhat about Reconstruction it’s no big surprise. And racist ppl think ramifications of this horrific period of time DOESNT exist SMH
