The Great Debaters

This post is not finished and will be updated soon.

Today we saw the movie “The Great Debaters”. One of the themes in the movie were “Jon Crow Laws”. These laws were laws that was enacted between 1876 and 1965. these laws were state and local laws that separated the white and colored population in the old confederate states. This meant that white and colored people went to different schools, toilets, busses and so on… in the movie we follow a debate team of four who comes from a black collage. The team debates against other black collages, until they one day get to debate a white collage from Oklahoma. The theme of the debate whether black and white people should be allowed to go to the same schools, and in that debate there were a lot of good points.
