For the follow-up.

Look at the website that explains the History of Racist Laws in America.

Pick one law listed on the website “History of Racist Laws in America” and summarize the law for your peers. Do not limit yourself to only laws against African Americans…any law that goes against an American’s right for equality has a dramatic effect on the society as a whole.


You cannot pick the same law that someone else has already covered. So in the title of your post you need to list the law and the year. IF laws are duplicated, the first student to cover that law will get the credit. Make sure you know which law was covered.

Read two other peers laws and comment on the law.
