Segregation and Discrimination

“There is just so much hurt, disappointment, and oppression one can take... The line between reason and madness grows thinner” (Rosa Parks).

Segregation and discrimination was hard for African Americans as shown by, Jim Crow laws, the Poll tax, And the rise of the KKK.

Jim Crow laws affected African Americans because of how they made the south seperate from Blacks and Whites. For example there would be different water fountians for them to use.

Poll taxes affected African Americans by making it almost impossible to vote. the tax was used so African Americans had a hard time voting and made it hard for blacks to have any say in what was going on.

The rise of the KKK made the south horrible for African Americans because of violence that they caused awards blacks.
