well starting from 1865 alot of people were still around and cool with slavery so hardly anyone treated the blacks nicely and no one wanted to HIRE AND PAY A "sleek-feathered one" to work when they had owned them 5 years ago for free, so this made the blacks poor economically, socially they could not find jobs and they were harassed and limited on places to go due to the risk of racial clans, and politically hardly anyone would vote for a black person because people thought blacks had been slaves all their lives, when in reality there was black doctors, and such things.

Although the Thirteenth Amendment had outlawed slavery, it was clear that the Black codes were stilled a problem to many freedmen. The Black codes, which passed soon after the Civil War ended, helped maintain a cheap source of farm labor and sustained the social hierarchy. These codes made it illegal for African Americans to carry weapons or vote. They could not serve on juries, testify in court against or marry white citizens, or travel without permits. The Black codes weren’t completely gone until 1868 when the 14th amendment was ratified. Not many other extreme problems occurred until the end of the 19th century when the Jim Crow laws emerged. Jim Crow laws were racial segregation laws that separated white citizens and African Americans in schools, hospitals, parks, and on railroads. Segregated Southern schools gave white students new textbooks and clean, well-lighted facilities, whereas African Americans had to make do with torn, out-of-date books. Often several grades of African American students were crowded into a single room. Economic conditions at the end of the 19th century were an obstacle to improvement for African Americans. During the Civil War, countries deprived of cotton from the South had begun to grow their own cotton. By the time production resumed in the South, market prices had been cut in half. Banks that had loaned money to the Confederate government could not collect their debts. Credit became increasingly hard to obtain. An economic panic in 1873 led to the closure of some banks. Railroad companies went out of business, and the stock market collapsed. For many African Americans there was little choice. To remain in the South was to face poverty, violence, and discrimination. Leaving the South seemed to be the only option. Is that good?
