Disenfranchisement and segregation
Andrew Dang/Kendell Collins
Disenfranchisement is to take the right to vote away from someone or a group of certain people
Segregation is to separate by race.
How it was used.
The 15th amendment gave African Americans the right to vote.The state couldn't disenfranchise them outright.Instead they passed a law that technically applied to everyone,but had the consequence of making it harder for African Americans and poor whites to register and vote
Bulloch County court house.
In courthouses throughout the state,county officials enforced laws aimed at keeping African Americans from voting
Literacy test was a test that was given to a person to make sure they can read and right before being allowed to register and vote
It was a provision allowing former confederate soldiers and their male descendants to vote without having to take a literacy test.
Poll tax was the tax on the right to vote.At one time Georgians had to pay a yearly tax of $1 to vote.
