Jim Crow laws were state and local laws, primarily enacted by officials in southern and border states, that mandated "separate but equal" status for black citizens. All public facilities and organizations, including schools and the military, could maintain separate services and accommodations for white and black Americans, but rather than being "equal," the treatment of non-white Americans was typically inferior. Many historians have argued that Jim Crow laws institutionalized and systematized racism in America. Jim Crow laws included the segregation of public schools, public places and public transportation.

In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court declared state-sponsored schools segregation unconstitutional in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education. Any Jim Crow laws that remained following the ruling were largely overturned by the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
