Economic Limitations African Americans still had limited economic freedom even after the end of the civil war. The biggest problem for them after the Civil War was the hard labor. African americans gained freedom after the civil war,but once freed,they had nowhere else to go,especially in the south. They traveled far away but some stayed and did hard labor because they had no other option. Also,not everyone was able to acquire their own land,thus the cycle of poverty known as sharecropping began. Another example of a limitation were the Black Codes. It made the African Americans work harder than they should have and also helped to maintain a cheap source of farm labor and sustain social hierarchy. Political Limitations African Americans,especially in the south were prevented from exercising their new political rights. The Klu Klux Klan were an extremist group that were against African Americans. They intimidated the voters,burned down schools,and destroyed homes
