Black Codes were instituted in the South as a means of regulating the activities of slaves. Black Codes were passed by southern legislatures to regulate what ex-slaves could and could not do. In some states, blacks were only permitted to work as domestic servants or in agriculture. Other codes made it illegal for blacks to live in towns and cities. Blacks were denied the right to vote or permitted to possess firearms. The attempt of the Black Codes to reinstate slavery following the Civil War, angered many in the North. When Black Codes were declared unconstitutional or removed during the period of Reconstruction, the South reinstated them in the 19th Century in the form of laws called Jim Crow Laws. Jim Crow was a term used to stereotype Blacks as a song and dance man team. Eventually, Jim Crow Laws were also declared unconstitutional.
