Governor Hodges gave this speech to the Kansas House of Representatives discouraging the possible passage of a Jim Crow law. Many black Kansans were afraid these laws were going to be passed in Kansas particularly because Oklahoma had so many already in place. Governor Hodges urged that this law or any other of its kind should not be passed. In the end, the Jim Crow law failed to pass.
