IMAGINE…you were once a slave, now you’re free!
What you’ve fought so hard to gain is now yours!
13th Amendment? 14th Amendment? 15th Amendment?
…Until those freedoms & rights are taken away…
Understand the impact & destruction brought on by segregation during Reconstruction
Black Codes: Southern laws that severely limited the rights of African Americans after the Civil War
Jim Crow Laws: laws that separated people of different races in public places in the South
Take a deep breath….this was a simulation!
No… the quiz doesn’t count!
"Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black body swinging in the Southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Pastoral scene of the gallant South,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh,
And the sudden smell of burning flesh!
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for a tree to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop."
*If it’s about people in school,
please don’t use their names, thanks*
