Hack #1

As I was reading in Chapter 16 of the HIST book last week, the book was talking about how black women were being sexually violated and raped by white males in the south. The book then went on to point out how the freedom of African Americans was still extremely limited since the Civil War ended and that “change” wasn’t being made in their favor.
