U.S. History: When African Americans were forced out of cities and counties
constitution of the united states

The United States of America’s Preamble to the Constitution reads as follows:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

This Dilemma X topic takes time to remember a part of American history that should never be forgotten. History is an important part of understanding how we live today. It is also important to remember and to know history, so that one can understand when seeing warnings signs of any regressive actions in contemporary times. Not knowing history allows the bad parts of history to be repeated.

Shared below are only just a few articles on a time when African Americans were threatened by force to flee from the cities and counties in which they had lived.

These incidents did not occur only in the locations listed below. There were many other cities and counties that also share the same history.
