This chapter discusses black voting and officeholding in Mississippi from the high point of Reconstruction through the disfranchisement of the Constitution of 1890. It ends with the civil rights movement and Freedom Summer in Mississippi but shows that black political efforts were severely limited with the absence of effective federal civil rights enforcement.
