History of Segregation and “Separate But Equal”:
Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education
1896 the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Plessy v. Ferguson
that “separate but equal” public facilities were constitutional. This
included schools and school systems. Despite the decision being relevant
to African American students, similar segregation took place regarding
Hispanic, Asian, and Native American students across the country. In
1954 the Supreme Court reversed Plessy v. Ferguson in the decision
stated in Brown v. Board of Education. The decision was unanimous.
In preparation for this discussion, read the following case:
