Michael Fauntroy explores the history of the relationship between African-Americans and the Republican Party in "Republicans and the Black Vote." He writers that the Republican party had nearly unanimous support among African-Americans during Reconstruction because of Republicans' progressive civil rights policies. However, the Democratic party became associated with civil rights in the 20th century, and consequently most African-Americans now vote for Democrats.
