Disenfranchisement and Segregation
By : Aimee and Kacy
Disenfranchisement - To deprive a person of the right to vote or other rights of citizenship.
Literacy test - Voters had to own property, pay a poll tax, and take a literacy test. Since the questions were made up of almost anything, it would stump the voter.
Gerrymander - Draw up an election district in a way that benefits a certain group. A district could be drawn up to benefit racial groups, political parties, etc.
Segregation - The actions or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things.
despite all this, the National Association for Advancement of Colored People continued a campaign to rid the Jim Crows System.
