Jim Crow Car; Or, Denouncement of Injustice Meted Out to the Black Race

Book cover

In "Jim Crow Car; Or, Denouncement of Injustice Meted Out to the Black Race," John Clay Coleman exposes the brutal reality of racism and discrimination faced by African Americans in the early 20th century. Through the story of a black man named George, who is forced to ride in the segregated "Jim Crow car" on a train, Coleman sheds light on the dehumanizing effects of segregation.

The author's powerful and unapologetic condemnation of racism is evident throughout the book, as he portrays the injustice and cruelty endured by the black community with raw and emotional detail. Coleman's writing is both heartbreaking and thought-provoking, forcing readers to confront the ugly truth of institutionalized racism and its impact on individuals and society as a whole.

While the subject matter may be difficult to read at times, "Jim Crow Car" is an important and timely reminder of the ongoing struggle for racial equality and justice. Coleman's impassioned call to action serves as a stark reminder that the fight against racism is far from over, and that we must continue to challenge and dismantle discriminatory systems in order to create a more just and equitable society for all.

Book Description:
"My opposition to injustice, imposition, discrimination and prejudice, which have for many years existed against the colored people of the South, has led to this little book. In many parts of America the press has been furnished with “matter” for defending the colored people, through the medium of “Coleman’s Illustrated Lectures.” By request of my many auditors, some of whom being leading elements of the Northern States and Canada, this volume is published. Many persons interested in the welfare of the negro, have sought a more elaborate book on the Southern horrors. Therefore, the manner in which the colored people are treated, and the laws devised against them from time to time, are the chief subjects."

Quoting extensively from Henry McNeal Turner and Ida B. Wells-Barnett, as well as his own experiences traveling in the South and on segregated American railroad lines, the Reverend John Clay Coleman published this book on the state of the Jim Crow era in the American South, examining the US Supreme Court decision declaring the Civil Rights Act of 1875 unconstitutional, the horrors of lynching , and the degradation of segregation.
