Plessey v Fergusson: Seperate is (Not) Equal
By solimaa, Updated
This cartoon represents how though the legislation passed under Plessey v Fergusson was meant to insure separate but equal institutions for both white and black citizens, things were not equal as seen in the lack of supplies in black schools and the severely low self esteem and happiness levels of African American students compared to white students, that would later be used by psychologist, Kenneth B. Clark, to argue desegregation in Brown v Board of Education.
Separate is equal!
