Civil Rights

Jim Crow Laws

The Jim Crow Laws were very unfair to the African Americans because they made segregation legal, if they were equal some followed the rules but most did not follow so most of the stores equal quality but most African American stores were not. African Americans weren't allowed to drink from the same drinking fountains as the whites. The Africans Americans were not very happy about the Jim Crow Laws. Many of them had signs on them saying Jim Crow Laws must go.

Women's Rights

Women back then could not own land. They also didn't get the rights to vote or have the same education as men did. Here were the suffragists that helped women to get the right to vote Elizabeth Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Lucretia Mott. After they fought for Women's Rights, women had voting rights.
During 1916 through 1970, about 6 million African Americans moved, this action was also known as the Great Migration. One of the big reasons why African Americans moved over to the North was for better paying jobs and better living conditions. The most main reason why African Americans moved was because the people in the South, they were being very prejudice of them. Even though the North still had segregation going on, it was a lot better than the South. Even so, the African Americans were still happy with that.
