Overview of Johnson's Plan
By Brandon Holandez
Civil Rights Act 1866
1. Blacks were allowed to own property, work and get married with ownership of the children. However it was illegal for a black person to marry a white one.
2. Courts were allowed to apprentice black children even if they didn't want to. This ends until a male child is 21 or a female is 18. However they were supposed to clothe, feed and send the children to school.
3. Blacks were not allowed to own firearms or sell liquor. They were also not allowed into the state without promising good behavior. They were not allowed to sell farmed products without consent of a white employer. The only job the were allowed to have were farmer and servant without getting a license from a judge.
