(15) 1889 Group of African Americans In Princeton, New Jersey Area (c. PRINCETON HISTORICAL SOCIETY)

This photograph shows a group of African Americans in Princeton, New Jersey in 1889. Decades after the end of the Civil War and the abolishment of slavery, African Americans in New Jersey are finally able to live their lives freely. New Jersey was reluctant to pass the 13th amendment and abolish slavery, and the New Jersey Legislature apologized for the state’s role in the history of slavery in the United States.
