Plessy doesn't give up and heads for the Supreme Court of Louisiana.
Once again on the way to get to the Kingdom of Equality, I am unstoppable!
It was a 7-1 decision with the majority ruling that Plessy's rights were not violated by Louisiana's law.
The Supreme Court stated that based on the separate-but-equal regulation, the law satisfied the 14th amendment by giving both blacks and whites their own separate train cars.
Why can't they see that separate is not equal?
After losing his fight to get to the Kingdom of Equality, Plessy carries on with his life remaining as an activist and inspiring others to strive for equality for all.
The Plessy v. Ferguson case is extremely important because it helped lead to fix the ruling of the separate-but-equal act in which states segregated public facilities between African-Americans and Caucasians. Later on, through another case known as the Brown v. Board of Education, the act would be overruled thanks to the pathway that Plessy has created. His determination allowed others to not give up and achieve in reaching to the Kingdom of Equality. This allowed everyone being directly and/or indirectly affected by the act to fight against it and think of other ways to successfully get rid of it.
