From the Paper:"The United States Supreme Court has been an instrumental American institution in the struggle for freedom and civil rights for African-Americans. However social change is often slow with advances in civil rights moving ahead in small steps rather than large strides. Two landmark Supreme Court decisions that illustrate this process were handed down nearly six decades apart. "Plessy vs. Ferguson" and "Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas." "Plessy vs. Ferguson" is generally viewed as legitimizing segregation by affirming the 'separate but equal' doctrine."
