African American urban histories in the United States typically focus on larger cities in the nation such as Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C. Despite the low amount of scholarly works looking at Texas cities, the Lone Star State was not a welcoming region for freedmen. This paper adds to the African American historical scholarship by discussing the black Fort Worth urban experience, focusing specifically from post Reconstruction to 1980. As the southern city grew during the late nineteenth century and into the twentieth century, African American residents faced similar prejudices and obstacles as other blacks in larger cities elsewhere in southern and northern regions. This is their story of overcoming these barriers and becoming an integrated part of Fort Worth culture.
