What type of educational gains did former slaves receive after the US Civil War?

After the US Civil War, former slaves in the South achieved significant progress. In 1865 less than 10% of Southern Blacks were literate. Five years later the rate rose to 17%. Not long after, in 1890 55% was the literacy rate . This was far above former slaves who lived in former colonies of European nations. As another measure, the number of Black newspapers reached 150 in the South. The increased literacy rates enabled Southern Blacks to achieve higher levels of education in schools in both the North and the South.
