After the Civil War, the south was in shambles. It was a time of great turmoil, known today as “Reconstruction.” In this period, the southern economy took a nosedive, African American families were torn apart from the war, and racial tensions rose between African Americans and Whites. Amidst the crumbling and the chaos, however, newly-freed people of color were joining the workforce in ways that had been previously unavailable to them. Through the three former slave narratives, a picture of the Post-Civil-War narrative comes to light.
