Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow

Grade Level 4th – 12th grade. Up to 2-hour program, 60 students max.

From November 1, 2022 – February 10, 2023,  Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When the period of enslavement ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal before the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half-century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow.
