The Jim Crow Laws were created in the 19th century.

The Jim Crow laws started racial segregation. It was forbidden for black people:

– to eat in restaurants where white people ate.

– to wait in the same rooms in train or bus stations.

– to wash their clothes in the same laundries.

The Jim Crow Laws were enforced until 1965.
