Jim Carolina reviews the struggles of racial political parties, racial violence, and segregated institutions that created oppression towards black North Carolinians. This paper is divided into two parts. The first part focused on mid-nineteenth century North Carolina that included documents that were related to the Constitutional Convention of 1868 and the Wilmington Race Riot. The second part focused on the mid-twentieth century of North Carolina with events such as the Greensboro Sit-ins and SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee). This paper concludes how North Carolina's Jim Crow laws impacted black North Carolinians to fight for their liberties and universal suffrage through protesting towards the state's government.
