When Homer A. Plessy, a New Orleans shoemaker, refused to move to the "Jim Crow" railroad car set aside for Negroes by state law, he initiated a lawsuit challenging the entire system of racial segregation. Fireside traces the roots of the Supreme Court decision that enshrined racial separation in America for the next 60 years.
