Plessy v.Ferguson Nathan Sherman
separate but equal is a constitutional law according to racial law which segregation did not violate 14th amendment
Homer poesy was arrested in Louisiana for boarding and refusing to get off a train
The supreme court ruled that races could be separate railway restaurants schools etc as long as whites and blacks are separate.
of course most colored facilities were vastly subpar to the white facilities
thats why a big portion of the 20th century civil rights movement is to abolish Plessy v. ferguson
