JIM CROW ERA

Write an historical essay on  The Rise of Jim Crow

 

Essay must answer the following:

 

1: What is Jim Crow?

2: What led to the rise of Jim Crow? Discuss how radical reconstruction played a part.

3: What were Jim Crow laws? Discuss black codes, Grandfather clause,

4. What were the effects of Jim Crow?

 

The primary goal is to analyze factual information and support your thesis statement. This is not a book report. Therefore, do not summarize vast amounts of information without making a point or including analysis. Papers that merely tell the reader “what happened,” without supporting the thesis with analysis, will be penalized significantly. Your ideas must be supported by information from your sources since you are using these sources to prove your thesis. After all, the purpose of a research paper is to make a case and to convince the reader that your writing and research supports your thesis. 

 

 

The assignment asks you to find a minimum of two academically credible sources (Do not use websites such as .net or .org), develop a clear, focused thesis statement, and to support your thesis with clear, insightful, consistent writing. Must have a great introduction and a clearly stated conclusion. FOR THE CONCLUSION, DO NOT MERELY STATE WHAT IS IN THE PAPER BUT PRESENT NEW AND INTERESTING INFORMATION.

 

MINIMUM OF 700 WORDS WITH AT LEAST 2 SCHOLARLY SOURCES  IN MLA FORMAT. NO PLAGIARISM, NO JARGONS.
