Watch the following video: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/bf09.socst.us.const.plessy/plessy-v-ferguson/ Plessy v. Ferguson was an 1896 Supreme Court decision allowing separate facilities on the basis of race, a doctrine which became known as "separate but equal." The case originated when Homer Plessy, an African American, boarded a railroad card reserved for white passengers, thus violating a Louisiana statute. The Court upheld the state law.
How does the Plessy decision reflect the dominant racial views of the time?
Write a journal entry (present day) if you lived in a world where the Plessy v. Ferguson case had NOT been overturned, a place where “Separate but Equal” was still the law. Make sure to consider schools, recreation, travel & work.
