I can explain how freed Blacks were prevented from exercising their newly won rights.
This product includes five Black Codes "posters." Two papers listing the common Black Codes and three listing some of the specific state codes (South Carolina, Mississippi, and Louisiana). Each page lists some of the Black Codes with definitions at the bottom of the sheet to help unfamiliar vocabulary. The papers should be placed around the classroom as a gallery walk. As students read each sign, they will answer questions.
An answer key for the student question sheet is included.
