Best Answer

Segregation had a horrible effect on African Americans. It made them feel less than human, that they were 2nd class citizens to the white people, and like they were not good enough to be out in public.

First, Black kids had no right to go to the same school with white. Second, Black people had no right to go in white-only restaurant theaters, taverns, and other public places.

Third, the whites would hang them, whip them, or even sometimes torture them for no reason for blacks. Fourth, blacks were no allowed to vote. Fifth, there will be black people that will help there black kind to give us our rights like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther king Jr, and other people that can gain freedom to the blacks.
