Perpetuating Inequality: "Plessy v. Ferguson" and the Dilemma of Black Access to Public and Higher Education.
Henry, A'Lelia Robinson
Journal of Law and Education, v27 n1 p47-71 Jan 1998
Presents a twofold argument concerning the persistent disparity in overall black educational attainment rates. "Plessy v. Ferguson" was originally used to deny African Americans public education opportunities then provided to White Americans. "Plessy's" color-blind premise is presently being revived and used to nullify remedies and programs designed to increase Black access to public and higher education. (88 footnotes) (MLH)
