Slide2 l.jpg

The escalation of segregation in the South began immediately after the Civil War.


Slide3 l.jpg

The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, along with the two Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875 and the various Enforcements Acts of the early 1870s, curtailed the ability of southern whites to formally deprive blacks of their civil rights.

Rutherford B. Hayes

The decade of the 1880s was characterized by mob lynching‘s and a vicious system of convict prison farms and chain gains


Slide7 l.jpg

In 1890 Louisiana passes the infamous Jim Crow law mandating separate but equal accommodations for blacks and whites


Slide8 l.jpg

By 1910, every state of the former Confederacy had adopted laws that segregated all aspects of life wherein blacks and whites might socially mingle or come into contact.


Slide10 l.jpg

Impoverished and often illiterate southern blacks were in a weak position in the 1890s for confronting the racist culture of Jim Crow.

The Land mark Supreme Court's in 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson


Slide12 l.jpg

W.E.B. Du Bois

By 1905, the issue of how to most effectively deal with Jim Crow came to a head in the debate between the followers of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois.

In the 1930s, the NAACP, began to focus more of its attention on a campaign to challenge segregation

After the Civil War, the southern states scrambled to recover and keep the public school system alive. Ultimately this effort created a dual educational system based on race.

Schools were anything but equal

Brown v board of education of topeka kansas the issue l.jpg

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KansasThe Issue

  • Schools approached equality in terms of buildings, curricula, qualifications, and teacher salaries.

  • Nevertheless, despite “equality” of objective factors, intangible issues foster and maintain inequality.

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas

  • This case was not simply about children and education.

  • This new law had far reaching social and ideological implications that continue to be felt throughout the nation and the world.

  • The struggle for Human Rights throughout the world can trace its roots back to this case.

  • Reinforced the supremacy of the power of the people in protecting natural rights from arbitrary limitations imposed by governments.

  • The case did not abolish segregation in other public areas, such as restaurants and restrooms, nor did it place a time frame for implementation of the law.

  • Other pioneers would take up the torch of freedom and carry on the challenge.

Slide46 l.jpg

Segregation is evil because it scars the soul of both the segregated and the segregator…. It gives the segregated a false sense of inferiority and it gives the segregator a false sense of superiority. …It does something to the soul….this is why segregation is utterly evil and utterly un-Christian. It substitutes an "I/It" relationship for the "I/Thou" relationship. Martin Luther King Jr.
