Answer:

African Americans had to be integrated in American society

Explanation:

The Reconstruction period was made of efforts to integrate African Americans as normal citizens. The 13th amendment(1865) abolished slavery, the 14th granted them citizenship and guaranteed birthright citizenship(1868) and the 15th(1870) enfranchised them. The Reconstruction period is sometimes nicknamed "the second American Revolution"due to that integration.
