OBSERVING EQUITY
Parks and the Civil
Homer Plessy,
plaintiff in the 1896
Supreme Court case
Plessy v. Ferguson
Rights Movement
For some, recognizing the United
States was established on principles
of racial inequities is difficult to
grasp, but cannot be denied based
on the history of policies and
practices put into place to legalize
segregation in public institutions,
such as schools, transportation, and
parks and recreation. The decision
to legalize segregation occurred as
a result of the 1896 Supreme Court
decision of Plessy v. Ferguson, which
involved the arrest of Homer Plessy,
a man who was one-eighth (12.5
percent)
African
American,
Supreme Court decision of Plessy v.
Ferguson would legalize the " separate
but equal " policies and practices that
spawned during the Jim Crow era.
While the roles of the Montgomfor
sitting
in the whites-only section of a
train car after purchasing a first-class
ticket without any issues. Only after
being asked to verify his race by the
conductor was he arrested for sitting
in the whites-only section. The
ery Bus Boycott, Rosa Parks and
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during
the Civil Rights movement are often
discussed when learning about segregation
and discrimination, the Jim
Crow era that involved legal forms
of segregation took place from 1896
to 1964. During this time, African
Americans were forced to follow local,
state and federal agency policies
legalizing and enforcing segregation
in parks and recreation programs.
Although the period of legal segregation
may seem long ago, for most,
we are within one to two generations
of knowing someone who grew up
at the end of Jim Crow and was impacted
by the laws of segregation put
The Supreme Court decision of Plessy v. Ferguson legalized the " separate but equal " policies that spawned during the Jim Crow era.
