|Program Description||Emancipation and the end of the Civil War brought promises of equality for African Americans in Virginia and throughout the South. It took the better part of a century for those promises to begin to be realized. This program will identify and examine the effects of segregation and “Jim Crow” on life in Virginia for whites, African Americans, and American Indians. Students will also discuss the social and political events in Virginia linked to desegregation and Massive Resistance and their relationship to national history.|
1. The program will begin with an examination of the three Reconstruction amendments and what was promised with the end of slavery.
2. The audience will then track the emergence of segregation and “Jim Crow” laws throughout the American south.
3. The audience will then look at some of the events that marked the Civil Rights Movement, in Virginia and throughout the nation.
4. The program will end with time for a Question and Answer period.
The participant will:
- define “Jim Crow” and segregation, and describe the impact it had on the lives of both white and black southerners;
- describe the process of desegregation and Virginia’s Massive Resistance response;
- discuss the reasons that changes began to take place in Virginia and the United States following World War II;
- identify prominent Virginians and Virginia events in the Civil Rights Movement.
