Widely considered one of the worst decisions in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, Plessy v. Ferguson was an 1896 case whose decision upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities as long as those facilities were equal in quality; it became known as the “separate but equal” doctrine. It legitimized the racial segregation and provided further cover for further segregation laws. Amazingly, it was a 7-1 Supreme Court decision; John Marshall Harlan was the lone dissenter; Harlan became known as “The Great Dissenter” for dissenting in many of the decisions that legitimized segregation.
