On May 18, 1896, the Supreme Court decided the landmark case Plessy v. Ferguson, solidifying the “separate but equal” doctrine and providing legal protection to segregation laws passed by the states. Not until the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision did the “separate but equal” doctrine began to unravel. In this conference to commemorate its 125th anniversary, scholars looked at the decision’s impact on education and housing, and the challenges moving forward. The conference was presented by the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs at University of Minnesota, the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University, and the Othering and Belonging Institute at University of California, Berkeley. The Humphrey School of Public Affairs provided the video. close
