The Tar Heel State

Black History Note

The Coup of 1898
The Tar Heel State

Another read aloud session (2/19/2020) on Facebook Live was just completed; today's session was quite detailed in how diabolical white supremacists were in the tactical stealing away of the constitutional rights of our black ancestors in the Jim Crow'ed Southern States. The Tar Heel State was a living, breathing hell for Black North Carolinians in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries. You may love the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke University Blue Devils now but during that period of time if you saw those insignia’s then and you were black trouble was on your doorsteps.
