The focus of the project was to illustrate African American history including four periods: Antebellum, Reconstruction, Jim Crow and Civil Rights. We focused on choosing sites that could illustrate that history most effectively, noting that the Reconstruction era is often the most challenging of the four periods in that it is short-lived with little material culture left.
