    "Oh, Freedom" is a post-Civil War African-American freedom song. It is often associated with the African American Civil Rights Movement, with Odetta, who recorded it as part of the "Spiritual Trilogy", on her Odetta Sings Ballads and Blues album, and with Joan Baez, who performed the song at the March on Washington. Baez has since performed the song live numerous times, both during her. The Civil War began as a struggle to reunite a divided nation, and it became a fight to end slavery. For African-American soldiers, the cause was always greater—freedom. African Americans had been enslaved in the United States for more than two hundred years. Slavery had fractured the nation into two parts, North and South.

    Bound for Freedom’s Light: African Americansand the Civil War is on view through March 2, , at the National Portrait Gallery, Eighth and F streets NW.   This period was punctuated by intermediate struggles for freedom before the Civil War and more struggles to define and claim the freedom promised after the official end of slavery. Black women used the chaos of the American Revolution, the War of , and the Civil War to forge alternative and expanded paths to self-liberation.

      Soldiers in the Army of Freedom is the first published account of this largely forgotten regiment and, in particular, its contribution to Union victory in the trans-Mississippi theater of the Civil War. As such, it restores the First Kansas Colored Infantry to its rightful place in American : University of Oklahoma Press.   The history of black civil rights is the story of America's caste system. It is the story of how for centuries upper-class whites made African Americans into a slave class, easily identifiable because of their dark skin, and then reaped the benefits—sometimes using law, sometimes using religion, sometimes using violence to keep this system in Author: Tom Head.
