the effects of segregation
In 1896, the court case Plessy vs. Ferguson ruled that "separate but equal" was in order and that blacks and whites were to use different facilities and live apart on the other sides of town. This, of course, was unfair and a lot of people were angry about this. Almost 60 years later, the protests and demonstrations lead by Dr. King and others served as a pave way to the future of an desegregated America. Throughout the movement, minorities were subject to poor conditions and often worn out hand me down white objects such as drinking fountains and bathrooms. Soon after, Brown vs. Board of Education, Topeka KS issued that school segregation was unconstitutional which led to public facilities as well.
