I'm writing an essay and we have to write chose between two topics. Courtship and crossing the color line?

Courtship means to marry right?

But I'm having confusion understanding what crossing the color line means.. Does it mean a black passing off as a white person?

  • english -

    courtship is dating except with the intent of getting married, not having fun. Crossing the color line is crossing the barrier of segregation
