Elias Polk and 19th Century Race Relations

Columbia State alumnus Zacharie Kinslow examines the interesting and controversial life of Elias Polk. Once a slave to James K. Polk, Elias rose from bondage to become a leading black conservative, supporting the southern Democrats who had earlier enslaved him and his people. Kinslow’s research on Elias Polk reveals a pragmatic and complex figure who did what he had to do to survive in post-Civil War American while also working actively to secure and perpetuate African American economic independence.
