Jim Crow Laws

How did the Jim Crow laws get their name?

Jim Crow was an antebellum minstrel show character created by Thomas Dartmouth Rice in the early 1830s. "Daddy Rice" was a white actor who blackened his face with burnt cork and performed a song-and-dance act said to have been inspired by an elderly black man from the South. Rice's tattered costume and exaggerated movements and voice were an insulting parody that brought him international acclaim. The identity of the original Jim Crow, if he did exist, is unknown. Some say he was a slave in Ohio or South Carolina; others believe he may have been a slave owner. One faction holds that the name was derived from the simile "black as a crow." Regardless of its origin, the name "Jim Crow" soon became interchangeable with the word "Negro."

What were the black codes?

In the South following the Civil War, the white governments sought to avoid losing economic and political power to the newly freed slaves. The Black Codes were laws enacted in 1865 and 1866 to reduce the rights of blacks.

Under the Codes, they were not allowed to vote, to hold office, or to serve on a jury. They were also not guaranteed any sort of public education. In effect, their rights under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were being denied.

The Black Codes led to further exertion of power by the North, which demanded that states ratify the 13th and 14th Amendments before being allowed to regain their representation in Congress. Military rule was established and new Republican governments soon repealed the Black Codes.

Although they were ruled unconstitutional, the Black Codes were soon supplanted by the Jim Crow laws, so that the separate-but-equal doctrine allowed states to continue to repress their black populations for another century.

In addition, attacking the Black Codes were a high priority for Congress. The Civil Rights Act of 1866, was a step towards this goal.
