"Hello and welcome to the podcast, I'm Tracy v Wilson, and it's November tenth a mob of white supremacists. Overthrew the democratically elected government of Wilmington North Carolina on this day in eighteen ninety eight this incident happened after the end of the post civil war reconstruction to parties in North Carolina had banded together to form a coalition came to be known as fusion politics. These were the Republicans and the populists who were also known as the People's Party both parties knew that individually, they didn't have enough political power or voters to try to unseat the Democrats and the Democrats at that time were mainly made up of wealthy people, many of them former slave owners who had also worked against the civil rights gains, reconstruction and implemented Jim crow segregation. But together, the Republicans and the populist thought they had a chance of getting enough voters to work toward their common goals where they had the same. Ambitions. They could work together to accomplish it and in eighteen ninety six fusion candidates won every statewide election in North Carolina. They completely supplanted the Democrats after the election. The state house included thirty nine populists, fifty four Republicans and twenty Democrats and the state Senate included twenty five populists, eighteen Republicans and seven Democrats. The Democrats obviously were highly upset by this turn of events. And a lot of them were also explicitly racist in their view that black people should not be in office Wilmington, specifically was the state's largest city. It had a majority black population and on March twenty fifth of eighteen ninety seven the city of Wilmington elected, a majority Republican board of aldermen that included three black men. This new board of alderman, then elected Silas, p right? He was a white Republican as the mayor the incumbent Democrats in Wilmington refused to vacate their seats, and they argued this all. All the way up to the supreme court once they had lost. Their Democrats went on a campaign in North Carolina to try to retake political power. This included a campaign of racist disinformation that painted the black population. Specifically black men as violence and dangerous, and they got some help in this from Rebecca Latimer Felton of Georgia who made a widely publicized speech in which she branded black men as rapists and white men as week for failing to defend their women from them. Alex Manley who was the editor of wilmington's black newspaper. The Wilmington daily record published a rebuttal to this that became a talking point among white supremacists. Who demanded that his newspaper be shut down and that he'd be run out of town and response to all of these factors. A group of white business owners and other prominent white citizens turned their focus in Wilmington to election day of eighteen ninety eight and this was a conspiracy to take control of the municipal government. There were multiple people in on this plot, including two sets of ring. Leaders who were known as the secret nine in the group of six one of the ringleaders was named Alfred more what L and he gave a speech the night before the election in which he said to the gathered crowd, quote, you are Anglo Saxons, you are armed and prepared. And you will do your duty be ready at a moment's notice. Go to the polls tomorrow, if you find the negro outvoting, tell him to leave the polls, and if he refuses kill him shoot him down in his tracks. We shall win tomorrow. If we have to do it with guns armed white men patrolled the streets on election day in Wilmington trying to scare black voters away from the polls while encouraging in quotation marks the white voters to get out and vote on November ninth the day after the election white leaders in Wilmington published a white declaration of independence, and they summoned the committee of colored citizens and ordered them to go run Alex Manley out of town, and then on the tenth having not heard back on whether that had been accomplished, they formed an armed. Bob, they burnt down the newspaper office. They ran elected leaders out of town. Thousands of black..
