Jim Crow in North Carolina

Paschal, Richard A

"Over one hundred years ago, the legal scholar Roscoe Pound drew an important distinction between law in books and law in action. This book reveals the distance between the law in books and the law in action with regard to the de jure system of Jim Crow in North Carolina. This book sets out in two appendices all of the race-conscious laws enacted in North Carolina between 1865 and 1920, but the author argues that the application and operation of the laws was much more important on the ground than the statutory text. Moreover, the author contends that the racial contagion which swept the state during the elections in 1898 and 1900--the White Supremacy Campaigns-dramatically changed white attitudes in such a way that the operation of the law changed dramatically, as well."--
