Segregation & Discrimination

Tuesday September 27, 2011

This week we are changing our schedule a bit because I can’t be here on Thursday. I will be here on Tuesday and Ms. Connolly will be here on Thursday.

Today, we will be working in pairs on the Guided Reading on Section 4 about Segregation and Discrimination. As you know, slavery was ended by the Civil War and the Constitution was amended to give African American’s freedom and rights. But in practice, especially in the South, these rights were not granted. After the Reconstruction Era (when the South was rebuilt and basic equality was enforced by the Federal Government), the southern states came up with a number of ways to disenfranchise African Americans.

You will be reading about the forms of discrimination and segregation that existed in the South after Reconstruction. This section is very important because it will be essential that you understand the concepts when we cover the Civil Rights movement in the second semester. Also, this is important material to know for the OGT.

You should be able to identify: the 14th & 15th Amendments, Jim Crow Laws, Plessy v. Ferguson, Booker T. Washington, & W.E.B. Du Bois.
