Jim Crow Laws & Civil Rights Movement

Racism has been prevalent to the world in an unfathomable amount of years and still occurs in todays world. However, there were times where freedom and equality were ideas concepted by the forsaken, where a black man was considered to be inferior to the white man. Take a look at two time periods that go hand in hand with one another. The tie of the Jim Crow Laws and the Civil Rights Movement. The Jim Crow Laws occurred when blacks were finally "free", after the Civil War where as the Civil Rights Movement came when those under persecution wanted TRUE freedom that they were imperceptibly not granted years before. The Civil Rights Movement basiclly ended the Jim Crow Laws with all the power they could muster up.

They both highlighted the struggle and the journey to tranquility and the unifying of humans as people. These time periods taught us tht skin color is irrelevent, that people shouldn't be judged by the color of their skin but instead the content of their character; going in accordance with MLK. We should look at all this as a reason to unite as a people for all the sacrifices made by those of the past created the future that we are living currently where blacks, whites and other nationalities can be ONE.

Black people were victimized and persecution even to the point of death, hanging them from a noose was usually the action.
