Sometimes I like to ponder if Lincoln had lived out his 2nd term, would the rights of persons of color had been respected by everyone and Washington, DC as well. Would their right to enfranchisement have been respected? Would the KKK have been such a significant, albeit negative, part of our history?
These are questions I pose to my students when we discuss the Civil Rights Movement, Underground RR or CW. Boy, you ought to see the smoke risin' in class then! Really gets them thinking. Puts a hurtin' on some of them!
