The southern United States were left in tumult in the few decades of reconstruction following the Civil War during the late 1800s. Durham, one the many southern regions were rebuilding infrastructure damaged by that war. This reconstruction led to Durham becoming Black Wall Street and was the hub of African-American businesses and financial services in North Carolina during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
