Abolishing Slavery, Part 3: From Jim Crow to the Civil Rights Movement

This presentation by attorneys Dwight Yoder and Sheila O’Rourke will follow the legal developments after the end of the Reconstruction Era, including the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson that upheld racial segregation as constitutional. This decision led to the wide-spread adoption of “Jim Crow” laws that subjugated African Americans to legalized discrimination in order to maintain a de facto system of enslavement.
