    Were African Americans employed to conduct the census?

      Did the US government employ African Americans to conduct the 1870, 1880 and 1890 census? In examining the census documents in counties in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina I'm curious whether the US government employed African Americans to conduct portions or all of these.
