After many years of slavery, the 13th amendment was ratified in 1865, abolishing all slavery.
Although the blacks were given voting rights and the 14th amendment was created, they still experienced lots of segregation because of the Plessy v. Ferguson case.
You don't belong here!!
The Jim Crow laws made the black people feel inferior and discriminated. Rosa Parks was one of the many people who stated to stand up for their civil rights.
The separation between black and white children in schools was becoming an issue so the Brown v. Board of Education came to the Supreme Court. They finally allowed children to be mixed so that it obeyed children's 14th amendment rights.
After many civil rights acts and the famous "March on Washington" the black community were finally getting a voice and receiving the civil rights that they had been long awaiting for.
Today, all different races are mixed together and treated equally, although there is unfortunately some people who feel differently. The black community has come a long way and has finally gotten all the right they deserve.
