What Were Jim Crow Laws?

Jim Crow Laws were a set of laws that were organized between the years 1876 and 1965. They stated that all public places and public transportation; for example, schools, buses, restrooms, even the military, were to be segregated. This meant the ‘colered’ were separated from the ‘whites’. I n 1954, The United States Supreme Court declared school segregation to be uncostitutional. The civil Rights Act overruled the remaining laws in 1964.
