Product Description
This is a primary source reading using the actual text of four Mississippi laws in 1865 establishing the status of African-Americans in the unreconstructed South that collectively became known as the "Black Codes." The reading includes a track-back to the U.S. Bill of Rights, where students are instructed to fill in within the context of the reading the Bill of Rights guarantee that would be voided by the "Black Codes."

It's an important -- and widely overlooked in many history programs -- historical document that establishes the impetus and need for passage of the 14th Amendment.

Also includes nine DBQs at the end of the reading.

Great as an in-class assignment, or as a homework assignment during work on the Reconstruction Era.

Note: These readings along with more than 90 others are included in my book “Primary Source American History,” along with three mock trials, two mock congresses and several dozen projects review worksheets. If you like this (or the free readings on my store), consider getting the complete set.
