Black Codes

If you watch this 2:40 video you will see how much more crazy black codes were than you have perhaps been teaching your students such as: a farmer could not walk besides a railroad, you could not speak loudly around white women and you could not sell the farm products after dark and more in the video.

There is also a video on the origins of black codes.

Here is a series of the actual code from Mississippi.
