This is an Analytical Essay. Please answer the following question;
“In Plessy v. Ferguson, the Supreme Court enshrined into constitutional law the doctrine of “separate but equal” that had already become practice in the postbellum South. Although this case was decided in 1896, how did segregation or as it was known, Jim Crow, define the social, political and economic context of the United States in the South during the postwar period (1865-1900), either by practice or by law?”
