Transcript
"The Legislation of the Republic is in the hands of this handful of Slaveholders. The body which gives the
supreme law of the land, has just acceded to their demands, and dared to declare that under the
charter of the Nation, men of African descent are not citizens of the United States and can not be — that
the Ordinance of 1787 was void — that the American Congress has no power to prevent the
enslavement of men in the National Territories — that the inhabitants themselves of the Territories have
no power to exclude human bondage from their midst — and that men of color can not be suitors for
justice in the Courts of the United States!"
--The Albany (New York) Evening Journal, 1857
The author in this editorial is reacting to the Supreme Court decision in
Dred Scott v. Sandford
Following the end of the Reconstruction era, African Americans in the South were
often forced to prove their literacy before exercising their voting rights.
The Constitutional amendment that prohibited denying voting rights to people based on race or color is
the
Fifteenth Amendment.
"No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem."
Based on the statement from 1912, what Civil Rights activist would have MOST likely stated this?
Booker T. Washington
"Negroes, whether slaves or free, that is, men of the African race, are not citizens of the United States
by the Constitution.
The legal condition of a slave in the State of Missouri is not affected by the temporary sojourn of such
slave in any other Sate, but on his return his condition still depends on the laws of Missouri.
As the plaintiff was not a citizen of Missouri, he, therefore, could not sue in the Courts of the United
States. The suit must be dismissed for want of jurisdiction."
Which landmark Supreme Court case is this excerpt from?
Dred Scott v. Sandford
William Simmons capitalized on the rampant anti-Semitism, anti-Catholicism, and nativism of the 1920s to
revive which group that terrorized its victims through a combination of pageantry, costumes, and
violence?
the Ku Klux Klan
