To answer your question,African Americans didn't really have a political status because they weren't allowed to vote,or run for office for quite some time. When slavery ended and even as time went on African Americans didn't have a lot of money. Of course that has changed now. So their economic status also wasn't very good and a lot of them in the late 1800s and early 1900s worked on farms as sharecroppers since the majority of them were uneducated and were in poverty. As for social,segregation was an issue until the fifteenth amendment was passed but in some places expecially in the south segretation is no more but there is some ignorance between the white people and African Americans. So that about does it for their social status. Of course it is still getting better. From the start of the twentieth century to the beginning of the twentifirst century things have really gotten better. But they didn't achieve total equality by the end of the Reconstruction Era because by that time the slaves have just been set free and hostility was still there and especially the white southerners who lost their slaves lost money because it was the slaves that were doing all of the work to make the money in the first place. So thats why it really didn't achieve total equality even thought the Northerners won the civil war. African American living condition has certainly improved in the respect that there is no more segregation and black and white children can actually be friends and go to school together. They can live in the same neighborhood and the same houses as the white people have so over all their living conditions certainly had a makeover. I hope it will continue to get better until predjudice is a thing of the past. well I hope that answered your question. I dont have any links because I got all of it from memory of past history classes. \(\color{red}{Chance}\)
