Jim crow laws: it's affects on America's youth
1877, the end of the reconstruction, was also the year a series of laws enforcing segregation began to arise. These series of laws, known as the Jim Crow laws, made segregation, between whites and blacks, the law. From separate schools, work offers, and even water fountains; the display of separation greatly affected the once purely innocent youth of that time. Children began to naturally judge a person from their race at a very young age, this action made by many changed America's way of thought forever.
