Segregation & The Jim Crow Laws!!

My Five important facts?

  • -In the late 1800's, Southern states passed laws that denied basic rights to African Americans.

  • -Slavery ended after the Civil War (1861–65). Many southern states then passed laws known as Black Codes.

  • -Many whites believed they were superior to blacks. They wanted laws to keep blacks apart.

  • -Blackpeople were treated without respect and they did not like that so they made a voting law which lets black people vote.

  • -Ten years later, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 became law. It barred discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religious beliefs, or sex.
