DIRECTIONS: Write a paragraph answering one of the questions below. I expect to see summary and at least one meaningful quote in your work. Use the notes you took for "The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow": Part 1.
- Think about the people forming the laws about blacks. Why did they think such laws necessary? What was the deeper purpose of the Jim Crow laws?
- Pick one Jim Crow law. Describe it. What were the repercussions of this particular law? (How did that law affect society afterwards, and even into current times?)
- Compare and contrast two Jim Crow laws. How are they similar? How are they different? Which one had a greater impact?
