The readings include chapters 8-62 *Paper #1* is due Week 5 Oct 1st, 2021 before 1:30pm.
Paper 1 asks that you illustrate and give specific evidence on how all (4 ) four statues of the 1865 Mississippi Black Codes (Penal Code, Civil Rights of Freedmen, Vagrancy Law & Apprentice Law) were illustrated within our textbook chapters.
From there go on to present a case, with other examples, on how the White South would continue to regulate Black freedoms and thus invalidate true “Reconstruction” efforts.
