Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • The Fourteenth Amendment
  • The Fourteenth Amendment granted citizenship to all persons born in in the U.S. or its territories.
  • Try telling that to the Fourteenth Amendment!
  • Setting
  • A Post Slavery Nation
  • You are not a U.S. Citizen!
  • Evidence
  • "All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
  • John A. Bingham
  • Perspective
  • The Fourteenth Amendment was passed in order to grant equal rights to any person born in the U.S. or its territories. While most northerners and former slaves viewed this as a solution, a lot of southerners viewed this as problem. Because southerners did not agree with the republicans that passed this amendment, they created laws and groups that discriminate and in extreme cases harm people of color.
  • North
  • Audience
  • The majority of southern states rejected this amendment, and did not agree that colored people should have the same rights as them.
  • Northern abolitionists strongly believed that all people, no matter what color, should all have the same rights.
  • Significance
  • Jim Crow Laws
  • Though the Fourteenth Amendment promised citizenship to any person born in the U.S. or any of its territories, it did not prevent discrimination in the south against colored people. Jim Crow Laws were used in the south to discriminate against colored people "legally".
  • South
