Black Codes were enacted in 1865 and 1866 by new southern state governments. Similar to the Slave Codes that existed before the Civil War, these Black Codes sought to regulate past slaves lives such as prohibiting freed slaves to serve on juries or to testify against a white person in court. Although the Black Codes granted African Americans to possess and sell property and legalized black marriages, interracial marriage between white and black Americans was outlawed. Unfortunately, some states even went further to control the lives of African Americans by limiting their economic freedoms such as, preventing any African Americans from purchasing or renting farmland in the state of Mississippi. As a result of decreeing the Black Codes, a division
At the moment, I am on summer break, meaning I have a lot of free time to be online. So at almost any time you can find me either on the forums or on the server. Although during the school year I am normally online from 2:00pm-11:00pm taking breaks everyone once in a while.
As reconstruction begin, many whites in the South seemed to ignore the fact that Blacks were no longer slaves. The Southern states created laws called ‘Black Codes’ that restricted the rights of the freed slaves. “Black codes were laws that were passed in each of the former confederate states following the civil war that applied only to black people.” (Hine, Darlene Clark, et al. 303) The laws highlighted that blacks have no right to vote in elections. However, after the troops were sent to the South, Blacks’ right to vote and involve in public office were secured. Many whites complained about the policy, and some of them created secret organization called Ku Klux Klan. This group tried everything including extreme and inhumane violence to
150-years have passed since the Civil Rights Act and Black Codes were implemented. It becomes easy for the general population and historians to criticize the reactions of the South. Sometimes though, you have to look at it from their point of view, they had just fought and lost a bitter war that threatened their livelihood and social way of life. A life that has been a part of the South for a better part of two centuries. They were now instructed to change their way of life based on new laws passed by Northern legislatures in Washington D.C.
Some northerners believed that the black codes where a backdoor attempt at reestablishing slavery. I do agree, I agree because they wanted slavery they wanted people to work for them and not have to pay them. The black codes were put into place to restrict what blacks did. When blacks gained rights the black codes basically just took them away. White’s would scare them into working for them and the black codes just helped that. They would either pay them really low wages or put them debt. This is just a few reasons why I believe that the black codes were just a backdoor attempt to get slavery back.
Thank you for inviting me back for summer #6! I am so grateful you'll have me once again. I am planning to come home to work opening weekend but at this time I am unable to attend the meeting on Sunday, April 9. Please let me know if that is an issue.
As you know we're only two days away from the show! The official call time for tomorrow is 6 pm in Reitz. We will have pizza there at 5 if you can come a little early. Also we may need volunteers to help take inventory a little bit earlier than 6, I’ll let you know if that’s the case early on tomorrow.
My name is Nicole Lindmeier. I was wondering if you had any time available to meet tomorrow, September 28th, and answer a few questions for me. I was hoping to ask a couple of questions about my Unit 1 summary, and I also have some questions about concepts in Unit 1 for the quiz on Monday. Let me know if you are available at some point to meet tomorrow. Thanks.
