The Plessy and Ferguson Foundation

The Plessy and Ferguson Foundation was created by descendants and direct descendants of the protagonists in the legal case (Plessy v. Ferguson) in which the United States Supreme Court in 1896 held that racially separate but equal public facilities were compatible with the US Constitution. Eventually, the US Supreme Court reversed that position in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. The descendants of Plessy and Ferguson have created the Foundation to perpetuate the truth that the doctrine of separate but equal is inherently unequal when decisions are made based on race.
