Colfax Massacre The Untold Story of Black Power, White Terror, and the Death of Reconstruction


The Colfax Massacre tells the story of the Easter Sunday 1873 murder of more than one hundred and fifty African Americans by rampaging whites in a remote Louisiana hamlet. The Colfax Massacre marked the most deadly incident of racial violence during the era of Reconstruction, and set in motion the triumph of Ku Klux Klan-style violence and intimidation over federal intervention in local Southern race relations until well into the middle of the next century.
