Black Codes-20 facts completely organized
some of the laws that were passed inside of black codes
some restricted black people from being represented in politics
in some states, freed blacks were arrested if they didn’t have a place to live or work
black people were not allowed to vote for some time
black people were not allowed to marry white people
a lot more than this, obviously, but I couldn't find any more disctinct ones
my three HOM
slaves used persistence
slaves used thinking interdependently when they worked as sharecroppers on plantations together
slaves used thinking and communicating with clarity and precision
what are black codes?
laws enforced by democratic southern states
meant to control freed blacks
under the control of Andrew Johnson, who was the WORST PRESIDENT EVER!
basically laws that different states controlled the rights of freed slaves
placed on things that could restrict freed black’s rights
forced freed slaves to work on plantations again
supposed to ensure that blacks could still work for whites
very similar to laws restricting slaves
after slaves=free, word ‘slave’ replaced with ‘negro’
‘aimed to keep white supremacy in place’- khan academy
more facts about black codes
blacks still had to work a lot for very little money
sometimes had to work for the same people that they were slaves for
some states had hundreds of black laws
every state chose their own black codes
some laws in black codes actually benefited some slaves, and they were happy living in the south where they were.
ended by Radical Republicans
passed in 1865-6, ended 1857
people had to work for little to no money, AT PLANTATIONS, so it was basically SLAVERY!!!!!!!!
