Summary
Pulitzer Prize finalist Philip Dray shines a light on a little known group of men: the nation's first black members of Congress. These men played a critical role in pushing for much-needed reforms in the wake of a traumatic civil war, including public education for all children, equal rights, and protection from Klan violence. But they have been either neglected or maligned by most historians
Summary
A history of the Reconstruction era viewed from the perspective of America's first black members of Congress examines their key role in promoting such reforms as public education for all children, equal rights, and protection from Klan violence
