What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 62 in a series – “…called the “Jim Crow” car.””

October 7th, 2019

”My treatment in the use of public conveyances about these times was extremely rough, especially on the “Eastern Railroad, from Boston to Portland.” On that road, as on many others, there was a mean, dirty, and uncomfortable car set apart for colored travelers, called the “Jim Crow” car.”

From Life and Times of Frederick Douglass: (An African American Heritage Book)

Why I'm Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.
