The New South

Study guide for Chapter 4 Section 4: The New South.

Sharecropping Due to labor problems farmers devised a system called sharecropping. A farmer would work a parcel of land in return for a share of the crop, a cabin, seed, tools, and a mule.
Crop-lien System Because sharecroppers had no income until harvest time, in order to obtain the supplies they needed they had to promise their crops to local merchants who then sold them goods on credit. Any outstanding debts were added to their bills the following year.
Poll Taxes Fixed taxes imposed on every voter.
Literacy Tests Tests that barred those who could not read from voting.
Segregation Separation of the races.
Who is Madame C. J. Walker? Explain how she was able to do what she did. A leading African American entrepreneur who was one of the first women in the U.S. to become a millionaire. She was able to do what she did because she actually got up and worked hard to reach the goals she set for herself.
Name 5 examples of Jim Crow Laws. Use your book and computer to find the examples. Separate railway cars for African Americans and whites. They were also separated from other forms of public transportation, cemeteries, parks, and games.
Provide 3 or more real signs that are representative of the Jim Crow Laws. Segregation, racism, and discrimination are all things that occurred because of the Jim Crow Laws.
Describe the court case Plessy v. Ferguson. Again, use your books and computers to explain this court case. It upheld the segregation of public places under the guise that they were “separate but equal.”
How did the Jim Crow Laws and the Plessy v. Ferguson case affect African Americans in the South? It made it very hard for them to get things done and they were not treated as equal people.
