The Black Codes were a series of laws passed by Southern states in the late 19th century, after the Civil War and the abolition of slavery, to restrict the rights and freedoms of Black people. These laws were designed to maintain white supremacy and ensure that Black people remained a cheap labor force. The Black Codes varied from state to state, but they generally included provisions that restricted the movement of Black people, limited their access to education and employment, and denied them the right to vote.

The Black Codes were largely repealed during the Reconstruction era, which followed the Civil War, as part of an effort to establish greater equality and civil rights for Black people. However, many of the same restrictions were later re-imposed in the form of Jim Crow laws, which were enacted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These laws were designed to maintain racial segregation and discrimination, and they had a profound impact on the lives of Black people in the United States.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
