Use the research database “American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals: 1866-1877″ located through the Ellis Library (in Research Databases section) web site. Find a minimum of six newspaper articles from the 1866-1877 period that demonstrate how some things changed for former slaves in the first twelve years after the Civil War and some things did not. Find a minimum of three that demonstrate positive change and three that demonstrate how people of color continued to be treated as slaves or worse.Use your textbook and lecture notes to figure out the key words that will yield useful materials (“negro” and “Ku Klux” are good starting points).
Then examine the Library of Congress’ “Born in Slavery” database: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/snhtml/. Use the keyword search box to locate narratives or browse by narrator or state. Clicking on the author’s name takes you to a page with some information about the interview. To read the narrative itself, you must click on “View this item” near the top of the page. Use the keyword search box to locate narratives that will allow you to answer the questions/write your paper.
