  • Slide 1 - THE QUEST FOR EQUAL RIGHTS How African Americans achieved the rights and due process taken for granted by other Americans
  • Slide 2 - African Americans had to struggle for equal rights against great odds. Demanding equal rights could cost you not only your house or your job,but also your life. African Americans and Caucasians lost their lives to achieve equal rights for all citizens.

The NAACP refused to take any case that accepted Separate but Equal schools.

Plessy vs Ferguson 1896 the Supreme Court ruled that separate but equal accommodations were legal in the United States.
