    The Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) is widely known for having established the precedent of “separate-but-equal.” Following the decision of the Supreme Court regarding the "Plessy vs. Ferguson" case in 1896, many African Americans decided to push for the equality they so rightfully deserved. With the reversion of Plessy v. Ferguson came important cases which are now recognized as cases that helped end the Plessy v. Ferguson case. Thurgood Marshall thought of a imperative plan to attack the equal side of separate but equal, he did this with the help of Donald Murry. Murry was an African American honors graduate who wanted to study law, but was rejected admittance to the University of Maryland simply because of his color. The state of Maryland did not want to built a whole new University of Maryland, he was the only color men attending the school, so they decided to have a class for him in the basement, but the key was that the facilities and classroom were not equal. In Sweatt v. Painter, Sweatt intent on becoming a lawyer having been denied admission to the University of Texas law school in 1946 because he was an African American, the key was that there was more to an equal education than equal facilities. In Gains v Missouri, Gaines was also rejected into an all-whites school and were asking to either built a new university for only blacks or for the university of Maryland to integrate but the Thurgood Marshall and his defendants found this case to be a good case to lose and gain appeal to take it to the supreme court. Dr. Clark made a research to try to prove that segregation is causing psychological damage in children, but on the other hand Dr. Davis used his research to prove that integration was the psychological damage. With the research Dr. Clark made he found out that in the South 62% of the children thought the white doll was better and in the North 50%. An example that was used to show that school should be integrated was that even though white and black children were separated at schools they would still play together after school. This showed irony that separating blacks and whites ended up being used to integrate them and unify them without discrimination. Brown v. Board of Education struck down and overturned Plessy v. Ferguson. Finally in an unanmiuosly vote, the court held that segergation by race in public education is not genuine. Separate but equal doctrine became the legal basis for racial segregation in schools, colleges, universities, and the wider American society.
