Personal, Historical, and Cultural Biographies
In this exhibit so far, we have attempted to provide readers with a broad view of southern postbellum conventions—where and when they took place and who attended. Here, we explore the people, places, and organizations that shaped the postbellum southern Colored Conventions movement and the individuals who participated in discussions about emigration. In doing so, we hope that explorers will take interest in the minutiae of these conventions and reconceptualize the great movement as one that was constructed and maintained by thousands of dedicated people.
