Following after the beginnings of the “Farmers Alliance” which began in Texas in the late 1870s (Foner 510), the Black people followed suit and created the Colored Farmers’ Alliance in 1886; since they were not able to join the other alliance solely because of their skin color....   [tags: Black people, White people, United Kingdom, Race]
