Date: 1877-1964


Presidents during the Jim Crow Laws: Rutherford B. Hayes - Lyndon B. Johnson

Effect: South Carolina began establishing black codes. Consequently, Colored people had no rights, nor power to combat the unfair laws of the Jim Crow.


How it Ended: On July 2,1964 the Jim Crow Laws were abolished when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
