Time Period 2 – The New Country (1775-1800)

Not only did they put their lives at a risk, some African Americans lost their lives to fighting for the independence of their colony. And what did they get in return?

  • In this time period, you would see how the African- Americans actively participated in the revolution that led to the independence of the colony. You would also see how this was a step towards ending the prevalent practice of slavery, against them. Was this a successful move?
  • This time period also uncovers a different fight to freedom that had just started for the African Americans. This time, the fight was just a race versus an ideology that had held so many in bondage for a long time; a race against the practice that had continuously ruined families, love and life; a race versus slavery. Where the leadership and even the constitution of the newly formed state were not in their favour, what was to be hoped for?
