"If you haven't found a reason to die then you haven't found a reason to live"
But Daddy how will I get to school without the bus
Whites Only Diner
From now on we will not use anything Jim Crow.
I am Vernon Johns who was a Radical Republican and a minister who came to the city of Montgomery, Alabama to preach African Americans about their civil rights. African Americans got these because of the civil rights act.
Vernon was so radical he forbid his wife and daughters from using anything that used Jim crow laws.
Even after one of Vernon's closest friends died from being shot by a white police man. He was a freedman who lost his life trying to change segregation.
Vernon Johns endured so much discrimination from so many different people and organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan and even the police.
Vernon Johns urged Blacks to resist going to places that were Jim crow. He was sharecropping outside the church.
Vernon Johns was a prime example of how the 13 amendment did not finish the hatred against black people in the US.
