Summary
Tourgée was a Radical Republican Carpetbagger and political leader in post-Civil War North Carolina, where he championed rights for African Americans. Bricks Without Straw (1880) is Tourgée{u2019}s fictionalized account of how Reconstruction was sabotaged. It is a chilling picture of violence against African Americans condoned, civil rights abrogated, constitutional amendments subverted, and electoral fraud institutionalized. Its plot revolves around a group of North Carolina freedpeople who strive to build new lives for themselves by buying land, marketing their own crops, setting up a church and school, and voting for politicians sympathetic to their interests, until Klan terrorism and the ascendancy of a white supremacist government reduce them to neo-slavery. --Amazon.com
