Plessy v. Ferguson (1896)
#OnThisDay in 1896, the Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) ruled 7-1 that segregation was legal and constitutional as long as "facilities were equal"—the famous "separate but equal" segregation policy.
The Plessy v. Ferguson decision provided legal justification for segregation until it was overruled by Brown v. the Board of Education in 1954.
