Content Description: 

Laws supporting slavery prevented African-Americans from learning to read and write. Emancipation allowed blacks to seek the education they needed for achieving equality in politics, business, and society. After the Civil War, numerous schools and colleges were established by and for African-Americans. In Harpers Ferry, the Freedmen's Bureau and Free Will Baptist church created Storer College in 1867.
