Segregation Tom Hennessy

Racial discrimination and segregation has negatively impacted America through the segregation laws, the KKK, and the Plessy vs. Ferguson Supreme Court case.

The Ku Klux Klan was a hate group that targeted minorities during the 1900's. The KKK was a white supremacist group whose main goal was to stop reconstruction.

The Plessy v. Ferguson case made it legal to have separate facilities based on race. The facilities designated for African Americans were often worse then the ones for white people.

Segregation laws made it legal to deny rights to African Americans and immigrants. African Americans were often denied the right to vote through literacy tests and poll taxes.

Segregation laws, the KKK, and the Plessy vs. Ferguson Supreme Court case made life harder for African Americans. Segregation and Discrimination was a problem that hurt the south.
