First Black Statemen: Tennessee's Self-Made Men
First Black Statesmen: Tennessee's Self-Made Men if the first half-hour documentary of The Citizenship Project. At the end of the Civil War, after ratification of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution, there was a relatively brief fifteen year period where voters elected and the Tennessee Legislature seated African-American legislators. However, they struggled and sometimes lost against the forces opposing them both in the legislature and in their hometowns. Those forces used black codes, vote suppression, ballot rigging, threats and violence against them. View and discuss this little-known and intriguing part of history with NPT Producer Ed Jones and Kathy Lauder, former researcher with the Tennessee State Library and Archives.  Her research on 19th century Tennessee African American legislators led to the creation of the TSLA Black History website: This Honorable Body.

Panelists: Ed Jones, NPT Producer
Kathy Lauder, Former Researcher with Tennessee State Library and Archives
