These codes were established as an attempt to suppress the freedom of the recently emancipated African-American slaves.

Therefore in Southern States, the right to sue in court remained as a privilege that only white men could exercise.

However, these norms were limited in scope, since most of the black population in the United States remained a slave until the end of the Civil War and it was not necessary to regulate their legal status because being slaves they were considered as movable property and not as people with basic human rights.
The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, issued in the middle of the Civil War by President Abraham Lincoln, abolished slavery and meant that the black population of the United States changed their legal status immediately. A large mass of individuals of both sexes, and of all ages, was theoretically considered as US citizens and could therefore access the same rights and benefits recognized to the white population.
