As long as we paid the Poll tax and took the Literacy Test we are fine lets not threat about it.
It was the Ku Klux Klan. They don't want us to even 'try to vote.
Where else am I going to eat i'm so hungry and its pouring outside how will I get home.
Yes, go down the street and take a left.
Whites only Restaurant
Where is a colored place to stay?
We can't help you, our colored nurse is on her break you are going to have to go to the next hospital.
Please! I cant.
I am a freedman that lives in the south. In this cell the Ku Klux Klan just rang their house threatening them. The 15th Amendment states we have the right to vote. Segregation and threats wont take our rights and liberty away.
In this cell is a carpetbagger, she is in the south looking for a place to stay. This is also a scalawag helping her find her way. Before the Civil Rights Act was passed they had Jim Crow Laws which segregated colored and whites. This effected colored people in their everyday lives. The whites only restaurant represents Jim crow laws and how separated blacks and whites were.
Restoration is not a good plan, its considered to be Lenient in the south but its not for us colored people. We are not being treated the right way and that's not equal. These laws saying that a white nurse cant help a colored patient is wrong. Andrew Johnson won't care how many laws the white southerners make up, he is just lenient towards them.
