This four-part series constitutes a major cinematic achievement covering the years between Reconstruction and Civil Rights.
In this video I will be explaining to you who Jim Crow is. Jim Crow was a character who made fun of African-Americans by mocking them in his show. Just as a disclaimer I am not racist to any group of people and love all! This is just some history on what actually happened in the United States. God Bless!!

But as the North gradually withdrew its support for black aspirations for land, civil and political rights, and legal due process, Southern whites succeeded in passing laws that segregated and disfranchised African Americans, laws that were reinforced with violence and terror tactics. By 1876, Reconstruction was over. "Promises Betrayed" recounts black response by documenting the work of such leaders as activist/separatist Benjamin "Pap" Singleton, anti-lynching crusader Ida B. Wells, as well as the emergence of Booker T. Washington as a national figure.
David Pilgrim, a Black sociologist, runs the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia out of the small, white, Trump-voting town of Big Rapids, MI. With the help of private donors like Chuck and Ward, an elderly gay couple, Pilgrim believes that sharing his expansive collection can change the way racism is perceived in the United States.

Tour the Jim Crow museum with founder and curator, Dr. David Pilgrim. Dr. Pilgrim discusses some of the major themes of the Jim Crow Museum. Jim Crow was not just a character or a set of "laws", it was a system that built upon itself to create and sustain a society with a racial hierarchy.
A recorded movie on the history of Jim Crow Laws a team of college students put together in Fall of 2011. Feel free to use for classroom or educational use. All material has been verified. I've removed comments because apparently everyone is forgetting to be nice around here. I don't care what you think, you still need to respect others.
A recreation of the Jump Jim Crow refrain; ("Wheel about and turn about and do just so, every time I wheel about I Jump Jim Crow") the way it was performed by Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice (1808-60). This clip is so short I repeated it three times so you can get a good look. This is the only clip I've ever found that shows a performer singing and dancing the actual tune. This clip is from a Vitaphone musical featurette called "Minstrel Days" (1941). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUE3fKOYXws The guy portraying "Daddy" Rice in this particular film is Billy Wayne (1897–1970). He made a career out of playing bit and uncredited parts and worked steadily from 1931-1959. Read more about the history of blackface and minstrel shows at http://black-face.com
Alan Barron, a teacher in Michigan, was suspended for teaching kids about Jim Crow racial segregation laws and showing his history class a video that explained blackface. An assistant principle was offended by the video and suspended the teacher of 36 years, who was only a few weeks away from retiring. The Resident discusses.

White supremacy was kept in place by terrorism,but three men, each part of the fledgling NAACP, led campaigns to confront these threats. W.E.B. Du Bois called for veterans of World War I to "return fighting." Walter White went among the lynchers to discover the truth behind the rapes and insurrections allegedly committed by blacks, and Charles Hamilton Houston designed and successfully applied a legal strategy that challenged Jim Crow and resulted in the famous "Brown vs. Board of Education" decision, which desegregated public schools in 1954.
