Following two decades of tax cuts that strangled education and public services, together with a steady decline of white yeoman farmers into tenancy and sharecropping, Alabama politics exploded in the late 1880s and 1890s.

These delegates wanted stronger government regulation of railroads and great wealth, more government provision of public services, clean government, honest elections, termination of the convict lease system, higher taxes to support better schools and public health, and a strong anti-lynching law.
