What Was the Outcome of Plessy V Ferguson?

Answer

Plessy V Ferguson was a very vital court case presided over by Judge John Howard Ferguson that took place in 1896. The outcome of the case was based on the 'separate but equal' policy which meant that blacks were equal but had to use separate facilities from the whites' thus racial segregation. The outcome led to the arrest of Homer Plessy, a black who had boarded a whites' only train and was charged for violating the Separate Car Act. He was convicted and sentenced to pay a fine of $25.
