Who or what was Jim Crow? Join the Bullock Museum and a guest educator from the New-York Historical Society in an interactive discussion designed for students grades 4-8. Explore the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years following the Civil War. Highlighting connections in the long fight for Black equality, students will learn how the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the U.S. Constitution continue to have impact today.
