A Brief History of South Carolina Negroes Since 1895

Study of the experience of Negroes in South Carolina since the advent of segregation and disfranchisement in the late 19th century. Part of a series of brief (200 pages), interpretive monographs commissioned as part of the commemoration program of the 300th anniversary of the founding of the colony at Charleston. The experience of Negroes in South Carolina has several distinctive features: at one time Negroes were a substantial majority of the state's population (about 60% in 1880) but since World War I the percentage has declined to about 33%; though one of the most rigid states in defense of white supremacy, the state has moderated its position in recent years, accommodating racial changes with less violence than in other deep South states. Monograph to stress the social history of South Carolina Negores, racial policy in the state, the nature and extent of racial inequities and discrimination, and the efforts of black Carolinians to overcome or neutralize these inequalities.
