[CANCELED] One-Day Seminar: Jim Crow: Its Roots and Impact on African Americans hosted by Cheatham Middle School (Ashland City, TN)
April 18 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
This seminar will focus on the roots of Jim Crow in the late 19th century. What was the catalyst for Jim Crow legislation? How did the laws and customs of Jim Crow get firmly established? How was it defended by its supporters? How was it attacked by civil rights advocates and how did African Americans respond to the systematic discrimination of Jim Crow? Join your colleagues for a deep dive into documents that describe what C. Vann Woodward called, “The Strange Career of Jim Crow.”
