Separate & Unequal: The African American Fight Against A Jim Crow Nation

Tue, February 9, 2021 (4:00 PM - 6:00 PM) PST
Online

Description

Although the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case ruled that “separate but equal” was constitutional, Jim Crow was always separate, but never equal.

Sometimes we are taught to think of segregation as only separation. But segregation, or “Jim Crow” as it was nicknamed, was far more than separation. It was the denial of full humanity to Black people, and led to the diminished lives of African Americans.

It even caused their deaths.

And Jim Crow existed on massive levels of violence.

What you also need to know is that, although many of us learned the MYTH that segregation was a southern phenomenon. Jim Crow was a NATIONAL reality. In the north, as well as the south.

And it was violent in the north too.

Join historian and educator Jamon Jordan of Black Scroll Network History & Tours for this virtual lecture on the rise of Jim Crow and the African American fight against it.
