this is a photo of segrigated seating in a city bus after the civil war. while white citizens get to sit up front of the bus on normal seats, black americans have to ride on crowded benches in the back.
many things after the civil war were seperated. some people didnt think that blacks should share things with whites. things from seats on a bus to school rooms. this picture shows an example of this.
lots of bussineses decided not to give thier services to free slaves after the war.
