This presentation is based upon Paschal’s new book, Jim Crow in North Carolina. Paschal surveys the Jim Crow laws enacted by the North Carolina legislature from 1865 to 1920. But, in addition, Paschal reveals how the laws and statutes do not fully explain the true extent of racial discrimination created through the implementation of law. The author demonstrates how de jure discrimination in North Carolina was not simply a result of the Jim Crow statutes but was imposed through the operation of law and, in turn, how the operation of law was itself affected by societal attitudes.
