Transcript of Black Codes vs. Jim Crow Laws

Difference between the two Black Codes we put into place to regulate what slaves could and could not do, they were another way to reinstate slavery following the Civil War, dealing with social controls. While Jim Crow Laws deprived blacks of civic and political power, such as segregating schools and forbidding intermarriage between blacks and whites.
