How were Plessy v. Ferguson and Jim Crow laws connected?
Can't really come up with an answer from the book. Any help?

a white person (with black blood because Louisiana had a "one drop rule" because Louisiana is stupid)
purposely got caught in the white section of the Lousiana train.
The supreme court case involving this was Plessey vs. Ferguson which declared the Jim Crow laws constitutional because said train happened to have decent black amenities.

Jim Crow laws were for the purpose of segregation. Plessy v Ferguson allowed separate but equal facilities, they were separate, but not equal. However, this case stood until Brown v Board of Education which reversed Plessy v Ferguson.

The thirteenth Ammendment Abolished Slavery, the suitable wording is as follows: a million. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, different than as a punishment for crime whereof the celebration shall have been duly convicted, shall exist in the USA, or anyplace subject to their jurisdiction. 2. Congress shall have skill to implement this text via suitable law. No regulations or legal action that i'm conscious ever circumscribed the thirteenth ammendment. as quickly as slavery became into abolished, that became into the tip of it. The 14th ammendment, in spite of the undeniable fact that, assured equivalent secure practices and rights under the regulation to all voters. a number of submit civil conflict regulations have been enacted which "have been given around" this assure via arguing that centers and protections ought to be "Separate, yet equivalent." This became into the racial segregation, commonly in the south, for nearly a hundred years following the civil conflict.
