Dawn of a New Era

After facing the brutalities of racism,
African Americans were standing in front of white skepticism,
urging for a chance to be heard.
The case of Plessey vs. Ferguson made it possible
to have African Americans and Anglo-Saxons to
be “seperate but equal”, which turned out to be a trouble.
They lived seperately, but not equal, getting the treatment
that corresponded to their skin pigment.
After many years of segregation, one case comes up
that dared to challenge Plessey vs. Ferguson,
and that was Brown vs. The Board of Education.
This was the case that said, “enough is enough”
for segregation between races, especially
when it came to segregating the children in the schools.
The “seperate but equal” doctrine was overturned, which gave way
the beginning of a new era, an era where different races can interact-
an era where diversity will be granted.
And with that, the seeds of equality will be planted.
