Three Important Facts

From 1877- 1954, African American people were legally separated in the United States.

"From the late 1870s, Southern state legislatures passed laws requiring the separation of whites from “persons of color” in public transportation and schools. "

"In 1954, it declared segregation in public schools unconstitutional, and, by extension, this ruling was applied to other public facilities."
