Intermarriage in the South
This storyboard does not have a description.
Throughout the 1880s to the 1960's, Jim Crow Laws were used to enforce segregation and forbade such things as intermarriage
16 US states had adopted laws specifically against intermarriage, and those who violated those laws were often jailed
There was an extreme stigma behind interracial couples, and many people feared it. So it wasn't uncommon for some white men to use violence against black men who wanted to be with a white woman
This lead to the obvious result of most people marrying within their own race
Even after it was deemed legal to marry other races by the supreme court in 1967, several states still had laws outlawing it, the last state to officially repeal it was in 2000
However, the effects of the past are still seen in the south today, as there is still a stigma of marrying those of other races and many continue to believe that it is a sin to do otherwise
