History of the United States

In U.S. history, what is the name used for laws that enforced racial segregation in the South between the end of Reconstruction in 1877 and the beginning of the civil rights movement in 1950?
The name is derived from a song and dance caricature of black people performed in blackface by white actor Thomas D. Rice in 1928.
The term quickly came to have a derogatory meaning when referring to African- Americans.
