Rating: 2, High!

Description: Douglass succinctly summarized the reality of Jim Crow in an 1887 letter that claimed the South's "wrongs are not much now written in laws which all may see ? but the hidden practices of people who have not yet, abanonded the idea of Mastery and dominion over their fellow man." Racism, violence, and vigilantism were the tools of "Mastery" that permitted whites to accomplish what the law theoretically prohibited.
