How were the Black Codes related to the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment? After the Thirteenth Amendment banned slavery, Black Codes were created to restrict the rights of African Americans. Southern landowners were exempt from obeying the Thirteenth Amendment as a result of Black Codes. The Thirteenth Amendment banned slavery, so African Americans in the South were no longer affected by Black Codes. Black Codes called for the end of slavery prior to passage of the Thirteenth Amendment.

Hi there! Black codes were related to the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment because... A. After the Thirteenth Amendment banned slavery, Black Codes were created to restrict the rights of African Americans. Black Codes were created by primarily souther states to circumvent laws and amendments banning slavery. Their purpose was to effectively restrict African American's rights by compelling them to work for cheap labor as if they were still slaves.
