Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • 13th Amendment
  • Adopted during Reconstruction, this amendment is one of the 3 that guarantee equal protection for all citizens
  • Setting
  • President Lincoln
  • "All slaves in the rebellious states shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free!"
  • Evidence
  • The 13th Amendment makes slavery illegal in the United States and all of it's territories. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime is allowed
  • Perspective
  • There were high hopes for African Americans, but White southerners soon passed laws that decreased the rights of the newly free Blacks.
  • Audience
  • Significance
  • Although the Blacks were now free, they still were not equal to Whites. Jim Crow laws were characterized by unequal opportunities in work, education, housing, government, and jobs.
  • A lot of Southerners opposed and were very angered about Reconstruction in general. They quickly began to pass laws that made it alright to discriminate against African Americans. (Black Codes & Jim Crow Laws)
