The duBois Institute hosted a conference marking the 100th anniversary of the Plessy v. Ferguson U.S. Supreme Court decision which was argued in April 1896. The case dealt with the constitutionality of a Louisiana law which required railroads to provide equal but separate accommodations for blacks and whites. The “separate, but equal” ruling governed discrimination cases until the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision. In this session a panel of attorneys involved in all the major congressional redistricting cases discussed their cases. Students from Tuskeegee Institute participated by remote connection. close
