  • In 1896, the Supreme Court established the doctrine of separate but equal in Plessy v. Ferguson, after a black man in New Orleans attempted to sit in a whites-only railway car, a doctrine that came to be known as "separate but equal".
  • Black voters were systematically turned away from state polling places. To combat this problem, Congress passed the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870.Yet states still found ways to circumvent the Constitution and prevent blacks from voting.
  • African Americans. Lynchings and white mob violence provoked real fear in black communities. white Southerners reacted swiftly against blacks and did whatever they wanted just to push their buttons
  • Public parks were forbidden for African Americans to enter, and theaters and restaurants were segregated. Segregated waiting rooms in bus and train stations were required, as well as water fountains, etc.
  • Everything has changed so much but yet so little since these times, African Americans can do everything white’s can do but there are still people who are racist unfortunately, but we still came along way from where we were at.
