(p.124) 9 At the Dark Dawn of Jim Crow
Frederick Douglass

D. H. Dilbeck

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter covers the final years of Douglass’s life, as he lived to see the onset of the system of Jim Crow segregation and disenfranchisement. It describes the final phase of Douglass’s public life, as he once again used his prophetic faith to denounce injustice in America—in this case, the emerging Jim Crow order. The chapter explains the religious foundations of Douglass’s opposition to Jim Crow, and his prophetic hope in God’s eventual deliverance from oppressive systems of segregation and disenfranchisement.

Keywords:   Jim Crow, Segregation, Disenfranchisement, Religion and segregation, Religion and Jim Crow
