What if the American Reconstruction Era black politicians and black wealth had been allowed to remain and build?

I was just thinking about this as I had read about the black men who had served as politicians until violent revolt by white supremacists and segregation occurred. What do you think the world would look like if A the revolts had failed B segregation didn’t become law

Edit: I am NOT a historian and my high school history classes were taught by a man who was explicitly racist and was fired for it. I have been doing my own studying of history as an adult and I wasn’t even aware that there was a reconstruction era or black Wall Street until I was 19. If I am misconstruing anything I would be very grateful for a pointer in the correct direction, thank you!

Turns out known insurrectionists aren't allowed to seek election (or re-election in this case) thanks to reconstruction era laws preventing confederates from holding office. Guess he regrets speaking in the capitol on Jan 6th now. (link in comments)

Are there any sources that talk about Missouri-Texas Migration during reconstruction era?

I am doing research on my family history. They moved from Missouri to Texas during the reconstruction era but I wanted to figure out what historical reasons people pushed to leave Missouri and go there since my family members don't know why they left.

If anybody knows any academic sources or even migration data between the two states during this time, I would be very grateful.

Opinions on John Brown and the Reconstruction era?

This is a US-centric question.

What do you think of the following? I guess I'll leave Wikipedia-esque summaries:

>John Brown (1800-1859) was an abolitionist from the USA. In 1859, Brown led a raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry, Virginia (today West Virginia), intending to start a slave liberation movement that would spread south; he had prepared a Provisional Constitution for the revised, slavery-free United States he hoped to bring about. He seized the armory, but seven people were killed, and ten or more were injured. Brown intended to arm slaves with weapons from the armory, but only a few slaves joined his revolt. Those of Brown's men who had not fled were killed or captured by local militia and U.S. Marines. Brown was the first person executed for treason in the history of the United States.
>
>The Reconstruction era was a period in US history following the Civil War (1861–1865) from 1865 to 1877. Reconstruction, as directed by Congress, abolished slavery and ended the remnants of Confederate secession in the Southern states; it presented the newly freed slaves (freedmen; black people) as citizens with (ostensibly) the same civil rights as those of other citizens, and which rights were guaranteed by three new constitutional amendments. In nearly all the ex-Confederate states Republican coalitions came to power and directly set out to transform Southern society by deploying the Freedmen's Bureau and the U.S. Army to implement a free-labor economy to replace the slave-labor economy in the South. The Bureau protected the legal rights of freedmen while negotiating labor contracts and establishing schools and churches for them.

Further Questions

  • What were the positives of these movements?
  • What were the negatives of these movements?
  • Why did they fail?

(feel free to ignore these further questions, also I'm long out of high school if you're gonna accuse me of fishing for homework answers)

During the Reconstruction-era, the election of black politicians led to increases in per capita tax revenue, which was put towards public education and land tenancy reforms. This led to a boost in black male literacy. However, white politicians eventually reclaimed office and halted black progress. cambridge.org/core/journa…
