  • Sorry ma'am, the black school may be separate, but it is most definitely equal.
  • He thought he had heard the last from her. He was wrong.
  • Does the segregation of public education based solely on race violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment?
  • She took it to the Supreme Court, where they ruled against Plessy v Ferguson in a unanimous decision.
  • The court ruled that schools had to be combined. While this solved the immediate problem, segregation remained a problem for a long time afterwards.
