What are the Jim Crow laws?

Lovecraft Country is based on a 2016 dark fantasy horror novel by Matt Ruff that mixed the horror synonymous with renowned writer H.P. Lovecraft's work and racism in the United States during the era of Jim Crow laws.

It follows the story of Atticus Black who, along with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George go to Lovecraft Country in search for his missing father.

Absolutely not and HBO's latest horror based series, Lovecraft Country, is proof of that.

They were state and local laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States which were enacted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by white Democratic-dominated state legislatures largely to hamper political and economic gains made by African-Americans.
