Resumo

Resumo: O presente trabalho tem como objetivo uma análise acerca do processo de degradação das relações raciais entre brancos e negros nos Estados Unidos durante os anos de 1890 e 1920, bem como as formas de protesto empregadas pelos afro-americanos para combatê-la. Durante o período, historicamente denominado como Era Progressista, estruturou-se uma série de leis que se destinavam a privar os negros norte-americanos dos benefícios disponíveis àqueles considerados cidadãos estadunidenses. Além dessa legislação, conhecida como “Jim Crow”, costumeiramente entendida como um fenômeno sulista, práticas informais de segregação e racismo também fizeram parte do norte e demais regiões do país. Convenções sociais procuravam demonstrar ao negro qual deveria ser sua posição na sociedade: se não mais a de um escravo, pelo menos a de um cidadão de segunda classe. Nessa configuração, apesar do nome e de alguns avanços sociais, a Era Progressista não foi tão progressista assim para os afro-americanos.

Palavras-chave: Era Progressista, segregação, afro-americanos.
