          Why come to Kansas?
   Well before the last Federal occupation troops
    left the South at the end of Reconstruction in
    1877, oppression had already deeply eroded the
    few social and economic gains blacks acheived
    after the Civil War. Organizations like the Klu
    Klux Klan terrorized or killed African Americans
    who resisted the constraints of racisim.
Poverty, customs and laws prevented
 the newly freed slaves from buying
 land after the Civil War, Many
 returned to work for their old masters
 as sharecroppers, but dishonest
 treatement by many landlords and
 lack of education kept African
 Americans in economic slavery.
