After the end of Reconstruction, states across the South adopted what became known as Jim Crow Laws. The first enacted in Tennessee was on January 7, 1881. Many of these laws were in effect into the 1960s. The Jim Crow Museum, which is in Big Rapids, Michigan, has collected the largest number of artifacts from the post-Reconstruction era through the Civil Rights era, and even beyond. Read through the questions of the month to read about black history where you will find discussions of many different topics as well as extensive bibliographies. Be sure to watch the lengthy video that takes you on a tour throughout the museum.
