Description

The collection consists of one CD and an electrical panel board directory of 20 areas, two of which were segregated. This is demonstrated by use of the racial epithet "colored" for rooms designated for blacks.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Jim Crow Era, which largely existed from the end of the Reconstruction Era to the mid-1960s, was a legally backed racial caste system which segregated whites and blacks in nearly every facet of society. As such, public spaces and facilities designated for blacks often had the word “colored," now considered a racial epithet.
