We studied one scene from the movie Forrest Gump. I can't put this scene here on the blog but I really encourage you to watch the whole movie.

I found a few articles on the net that are interesting about this movie and the event the scene referred to, that is to say : the desegregation of the university of alabama.

The first one about governor wallace: "Stand in the Schoolhouse Door"

then, Forrest Gump: An Analysis,

Historical Events in Forrest Gump That Happened in Real Life

and James Hood, one of the first black students at the University of Alabama, dies.

Hope you'll find those interesting and that you'll enjoy the movie as much as I did..

Michael Moore (if you haven't heard of him go and read about the movies he has done) made a cartoon about the history of the US. He created it when he made the documentary 'Bowling for Columbine'. I'm note sure it was ever aired, and I've heard that it has been banned.

Watch it but keep in mind that It's made by Mickael Moore and that, as so, it is biased!

( And if you read the comments under the video, you'll see that many people disagree with M.Moore)

Here is a wikipedia article about the Jim craw laws

and here is a page created about the documentary "the Rise and fall of Jim Craw". On this site, you should be able to watch part of it and find many articles that should enable you to comprehend more of the period..
