Jim Crow Laws
By: Karis Chang and Tristan Meeks
What were they?
The Jim Crow Laws were passed to establish "separate-but-equal" facilities for whites and blacks. These were laws that enforced segregation in public places. Even though facilities were separate for blacks, they were rarely equal to white facilities. The impact of these laws was segregation. A bishop named Henry McNeal Turner called the new civil rights laws and segregation that followed them "barbarous".
Some examples of the Jim Crow Laws are separate restrooms, water fountains, waiting rooms, dining areas, and schools
