"What did the U.S. government do to 'reduce' violence against Black Americans after the Civil War?"

Answer: NOTHING. The full story has yet to be told. So let's do it.

This was the period after the Civil War, called "Reconstruction." Read W.E.B. DuBois' masterpiece - BLACK RECONSTRUCTION.

ALSO read prof. Eric Foner (Columbia University) - Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877, Harper and Row.

AND, from 1951, the petition of Black Americans, and allies, to the United Nations: WE CHARGE GENOCIDE.

AND then read Gail Williams O'Brien's The Color of the Law: Race, Violence, and Justice in the Post-World War II South. John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture. Univ of North Carolina Press, 1999.

Then read about the so-called "SUN-DOWN TOWNS" in the U.S. North - including the East, Midwest, and West.
