Notes

Abstract: Although historians have analyzed the rise of disfranchisement and segregation in the South after the Civil War, they have paid little attention to those processes in the West. Murray Wickett looks closely at the sociopolitical climate in Oklahoma to answer important questions about the opportunities blacks found in the state and how white politicians became emboldened by the fear of "Negro domination."
