"A combination of factors led to the dismantling of Jim Crow starting in the late 1940s. Supreme Court decisions in Sweatt v. Painter (1949) and McLaurin v. Oklahoma (1950) began to break down the "separate but equal" standard set by Plessy v. Ferguson and finally outlawed state-sponsored segregation in 1954's Brown v. Board of Education. Violent resistance by some white Southerners was met by a growing Civil Rights Movement that used boycotts, sit-ins, marches and other forms of nonviolent protest to achieve goals such as passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act'
You'll have to look up these laws specifically, however these are the major laws defined within your timeframe. Remember, Jim Crow laws were created as far back as the 1800s.
