The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy

How does society rebuild after extraordinary division and trauma, when the ideals and values of democracy are most vulnerable? We will explore this significant period  in U.S. history, when Americans were faced with the challenge of restoring a nation amid the social and political upheaval of the civil war. Furthermore, we will consider how the legacies of Reconstruction are still present today and continue to impact us in our racialized society.
