Do you think Reconstruction was more beneficial or more detrimental to African Americans, and why?

I think it was beneficial, does anybody else have a different outlook

    It was beneficial, but not nearly as beneficial as it could have been if the federal government had carried out serious land reform so that the freed slaves could have an economic base on which to build power. It would also have helped if the feds had permanently disenfranchised former Confederate traitors and executed their leaders.
