Storyboard Text

  • Plessy vs. Ferguson, 1896
  • Sir you've got to move to the "colored only" car.... Right now !
  • Why ? I have more white ancestors than blacks !
  • You have broken a Louisiana segregation state law !
  • What have I done ?!
  • The state law says the railroad just set up separate but equal facilities for whites and colored races. They have done that.
  • But this is unfair ! I have been denied equal rights
  • So Plessy has been held guilty because he sat in the white colored car even though he was one-eighth black. The Louisiana state law said that whoever had any black ancestors you are considered black.
