The Community Builders: 1877-1895, part of the Milestones in Black American History series, recounts how in 1877 the withdrawal of federal troops from the South ended the progressive Reconstruction era and opened one of the bleakest chapters in black America's history. Dark and ominous as they were, these years were sparked by flashes of blazing courage.
