"Explain how freedoms for African Americans were socially, politically, and economically limited from 1865 to 1900?" African Americans were heavily persecuted during this time as they faced obstacles that threatened their social, political, and economic freedoms. Social Limitations African Americans could rarely get jobs, without getting equal pay. They were limited in the places they could go to, punishable by spending time in jail. They could not even get a high class job like caucasian people could. African Americans could not marry white people or even go to the same schools. African Americans had a hard time living their lives during the 1800s. Jim Crow laws would be an example of discrimination towards African Americans. 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 that burned schools and destroyed homes that belonged to them and antagonized the white people
