Slavery has become a growing generation throughout the United States since the discovery of the "new world" that led to the establishment of the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies. The slaves there were brought from Africa to harvest, crop, and become servants. For all the intensive labor they did, they were repaid by their owners providing them with housing, food, and health. Although buying and selling slaves back then was done in a much systematic way, the more recent slavery that occurred was more incongruous. Many of them while working for hours a day, were treated severely with little or no pay. Inequality was more acted during this time, and which eventually lead America into segregation. During the 1870's, the new Democratic governments in the South instituted state laws for racial segregation. With this, their purpose was to separate and discriminate the African Americans from the white people in the South. The Jim Crow laws were passed down in order to disfranchise the African Americans from voting and having the same amount of equality as the whites did. As a result the elections of the paramilitary groups have intimidated their opponents, preventing the African Americans and other poor white people the right to vote. Their voting rights were denied through suffrage laws, which introduced poll taxes and literacy tests too. With this every white democrat gained power in the political and legislative governments that spread through the states. Many African Americans later on had no education or the potential to work in office. Public places were separated by the sign of "colored", giving them their own designated location to be. Many of the African Americans were rejected and forced to flee from white communities and business's. They were treated differently from the rest of the people, and were despised in some areas. With immense amount of hatred contributing through the South, the Ku Klux Klan organization began to grew. The Ku Klux Klan organizations have advocated extremist in the South, leading to an all whites-nation and supported white supremacy too. They were known for their gruesome white robes, and celebration of cross burnings. As a result of this, the African Americans were terrorized by the hangings and violence the Ku Klux Klan organizations did to many African American communities, schools, jobs, and churches. This was one of the most reported and seen crimes in the South, during the 1950's and 1960's. More segregation also began in the North, but was not as harsh as the segregation in the South. They still were discriminated from the white population, and were needed to live in their own communities due to the influence of racism even though the laws did not require it. The Civil Rights Movement then became active in the 1950's through the 1980's to end segregation. Many activists such as Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks were standing up for African American rights and equality's. These activists were challenging the Jim Crow laws and segregation to come to stop, and give all African Americans the right to speak for themselves. As the removal of the Jim Crow laws began, the Civil Rights Movement was slowly changing the thoughts and minds of many people. Her decision of refusing the seat to a white passenger was now a change in history, and a change in many lives too. The Montgomery Bus Boycott also took place, in order to get the people of Alabama understand that racism and segregation were needed to be stopped. A major turning point in history has finally arrived, therefore coming to the conclusion of President Lyndon Johnson whom has signed the historic act of the Civil Rights Movement in 1964.
