Jim Crow segregation laws and the costs of racial segregation will be discussed during this webinar. Economic reasoning will be applied to explain why, in 1896, Homer Plessy failed in his attempt to have an important doctrine of racial segregation struck down while, in 1955, Rosa Parks and others like her succeeded. This webinar will help teachers show why integration improves overall well-being and how economic factors affect laws and social norms.
