The next part of this activity involved drawing comparisons between the Plessy v. Ferguson and Korematsu v U.S. Supreme Court cases.
For homework tonight you need to fill out the Plessy box next to "Equal Protection and Due Process." Consider the following:
- How did the ruling of the case violate Plessy's right to Equal Protection of the law and Due Process?
- How did the Supreme Court (as evidenced by the Majority Decision (provided in the packet) defend their ruling that "separate but equal" did not violate the 14th Amendment?
