Segregation in America
By Cindy Grigg

2     Segregation is the separation of groups of people by race. In the United States for many years there were laws that separated blacks from whites. Segregation began after the Civil War. The war had ended slavery. Many whites did not want to treat black people as equal citizens. Many states passed segregation laws.
 
3     The laws, often called "Jim Crow" laws, meant that African Americans had to go to separate schools. There were separate restaurants for blacks and whites. There were separate bathrooms and even separate drinking fountains! Some laws made it almost impossible for black men to vote.
