Segregation Laws

Jim Crow Laws: (Definition) Laws passed in the south that made segregation laws legal.

These laws almost made white Americans and African Americans lives almost COMPLETELY different. Between 1916 and 1970 most of the African Americans moved north to have a better life style since the south had been treating them horribly which was called the Great Migration. In the North, African Americans went against prejudice too surprisingly. Some of the schools, theaters, hotels, and restaurants in the North were some of the things that were segregated. These laws were horrible to African Americans and they suffered horribly.

Womans Rights

Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Katie Stanton, all really big suffragists in the women's rights movement. This movement was a huge step to respecting women. During World War l, the government needed the women to step in and give the U.S. some help. This showed the United States that women actually could do a mans job. Some women even had joined a special branch in the navy, they didn't fight battles although they had very important tasks. The women's rights movement will always be known as an important part of our history.

Leaders for African Americans

Ida-Wells-Barnett, spoke to end violence against African Americans.
Mary McLeod, thought education was the #1 way to get racial equality.
W.E.B Du Bois, grew up in the North and went to college plus, spoke for Civil Rights.
Booker T. Washington, He grew up as a slave and believed education was going to help get a better life. All these wonderful activists and leaders for African Americans deserve a round of applause for all their hard work.

19th Amendment

Susan B. Anthony wrote a bill for suffrage in 1878.
The bill wasn't created into a law until 1920.
The woman's vote became the 19th amendment to the constitution.
These suffragists never gave up and always tried harder. They finally managed to get what they wanted and it turned out to be a great decision for the Supreme Court.
