Jim Crow was the name of the racial caste system, from 1877 and the mid-1960s, which is mostly associated with the Southern States in America.  Under Jim Crow, African Americans were made  second class citizens.  Find our more about the Jim Crowe era at the Jim Crow Museum.

Jim Crow Stories (resources for learning and teaching from PBS):

”Jim Crow was not a person, yet affected the lives of millions of people. Named after a popular 19th-century minstrel song that stereotyped African Americans, ”Jim Crow” came to personify the system of government-sanctioned racial oppression and segregation in the United States”.
