I was arrested because I didn't go to the colored cart on the train.
Jim Crow Laws or Black Code Laws
Effect on it all
This black was out after sundown
Plessy v Ferguson was a very famous supreme court trail where a black man refused to go to the colored only cart on the train. Because of the Jim Crow laws.
Jim Crow was a fictional character that was acted by a guy named Thomas Dartmouth Rice. They were laws that made racial segregation around to black and white people.
There was something called a sundown town and that made it where if blacks were out after sundown they would be hung or killed. This meant a lot socially for colored people because they were trying to stop black from being out after sundown
