Jim Crow Politics

Black Suffrage

Black Suffrage was very big in the Jim Crow era It was a terrible thing. It is another way of segregation. It was about how black men couldn't vote even after they were freed from slavery in the 1800s


During the civil rights movement The political parties changed. Before The Democratic party had the views that we today consider the Republican Party. It changed when Lindon Johnson a Democrat supported the civil rights bill. Not many democrats were in favor of the bill when it was first proposed, but eventually the bill passed 73-27.

Society and Culture

The country was very separated when it came to civil rights. The south was obviously very against but the North was for it. As with slavery. We are very lucky that this didn't evolve into another civil war. It was a very serious matter. As you can see today some people are still not over it.
