Chart of U.S. Laws Affecting African Americans

A supplement to the paper "Incrementalist Animal Law."

Background for this Article

This time-line is a supplement to the paper listed just previously, "Incrementalist Animal Law." I prepared the chronology from the itemized lists gathered for the paper. The time-line shows how long it took after the abolition of slavery in the United States to have civil rights laws, how they competed with racist laws, and so on. For further information, please see the essay. This chart is unique in that it provides a sort of visual, colour-coded overview.

The paper is available for pdf download.
