It was inevitable that blacks would stay at the bottom of southern society Just because they were free didnt mean that their lives experienced a complete turnaround The fact that they had no base on which to start their new lives made it even harder Many might have been better off in slavery The most important reasons they couldnt start out on the right foot was their education level racism that still exsisted and the overall transition Some people thought that blacks wouldnt be able to live on their own Most probably believed blacks just werent as smart as whites In some cases this was true They never were given a chance to exel in education because of the bonds of slavery A select few could read and write however this would not be enough to get a well paying job Many employers who were somewhat racist would place a lot of emphasis on education levels because they knew that was blacks weak points and that created a large disadvantage for blacks If they were given the chance blacks would be willing to learn Soon the chance to learn was given to the blacks An organization called Freedmens Bureau was started six weeks before President Lincolns death It served as a refuge for blacks and other low class citezensand gave them a chance to move above their former status It provided free meals built hospitals and helped newly freed slaves find jobs Freedmens Bureau also set up many schools where blacks could go to learn Howard University Hampton Institute Atlanta University and Fisk Univestiy were some of the college-level schools Freedmens Bureau supported One quarter million black children were sent to schools because of the work Freedmens Bureau did Despite the help from The Freedmens Bureau there were still the issues of racism After freedom most blacks couldnt do much more than agricultural work-similar to tasks they performed while in slavery
