Negro Politicians


Author(s):
Abstract:
African Americans have long held public office in North Carolina. Lawrence recounts several instances where African Americans played an important role in state politics. In the Constitutional Convention of 1868, there were fifteen African Americans including Bishop Hood of Fayetteville, A.H. Galloway, and James H. Harris. In 1868 there were African Americans in both the North Carolina House and Senate, and in 1898 there were more than 300 African American magistrates in North Carolina.
