Race Relations Model Writing – Par 1
During the Redemption Period, a New South
based on industry and progress was emerging to replace
the Old South of the Reconstruction Period.
Sadly, race relations did not advance significantly
during this period as Jim Crow Laws became the de facto
law of the South. In the case of Plessy v. Ferguson, a
man named Homer Plessy who was 7/8 white and 1/8
black challenged a Louisiana law in 1892 by sitting in the
“whites only” car of a Louisiana train. He didn’t win his
case, and the US Supreme Court said that states could
legally require separate-but-equal facilities for blacks
and whites. This gave Southern states the green light to
promote segregation in ALL areas of life by creating
more and more Jim Crow laws.
Race Relations Model Writing – Par 2
Jim Crow laws were originally created to “keep the
peace” between blacks and whites who were in coming into
contact with one another more than ever as many
sharecroppers and tenant farmers started moving to the
cities to find employment in factories because of difficulties
farming due to boll weevil infestation and drought. Jim
Crow laws were created so there would be fewer problems
between the races and less chance of violence. However,
tension between the races didn’t ease up because of Jim
Crow laws; it only got worse. The 1906 Atlanta Race Riot
which lasted two days in which 26 people were killed and
hundreds were injured is an example of this. Martial law was
declared before the city once again became calm. Other
examples of violence used at this time include lynching
which was used to maintain the white supremacy of the Old
Race Relations Model Writing – Par 3
During this period, disenfranchisement of black
voters was common as law after law was passed to
take away or diminish blacks’ ability to vote. In 1908,
Georgia enacted a grandfather clause that stated
that only those men whose fathers or grandfathers
had been able to vote in 1867 were now eligible to
vote. Yet others were made to take difficult literacy
tests or had to pay a poll tax to be able to vote.
Another way the black vote was diminished at this
time was through the County Unit System. This
system was in effect in Georgia until 1962 when it
was finally declared unconstitutional because it
unfairly allowed white, Southern Democrats in rural
areas to decide the outcome of a primary election.
Rid yourself of…
• The Bourbon Triumvirate
• The Convict Lease System
• Alcoholism
• Uneducated masses
• Women’s inability to vote
• Fear of speaking out about
causes that matter most
• The right to vote (if a woman)
• Ban alcohol
• Improve education
• Reform and change the
convict lease system
• A seat in the US Senate as the
first female ever to do so!
