We as Freemen: Plessy vs. Fergusonby Medley, Keith Weldon
Retail Price: $23.00
Issue: Winter 2004
Medley narrates the struggle of Homer Plessy and the Comite des Citoyens in their attempt to overcome legal segregation in the 1890's. The group set up a test case to challenge Jim Crow laws in the Supreme Court. However, Plessy v. Ferguson shares a similar fate in memory and history as Scott v. Stanford (the Dread Scott Decision) rather than Brown v. Board of Education.
