Instructions for Plessy v Ferguson:

In 1896, the United States Supreme Court voted 7-1 in the Plessy v Ferguson case to uphold "Separate but Equal" laws. The one dissenting voice was Justice John Marshal Harlan. Please read his dissenting opinion before you begin the lab. You will visually analyze the five primary sources below and then choose one (1) of the sources that would be most compelling as evidence for Justice Harlan's decision. Once you have chosen the most compelling source, you will complete the Primary Source Interpretation Guide. Then turn the sheet over to write your justification for the source you chose.  Your writing will be written in first person to Justice John Marshall Harlan.  Remember to use what you’ve learned about Plessy v Ferguson, all of the sources you’ve analyzed including the Jim Crow witness, the posters, artifacts, and the video you saw “A Girl Like Me.” 
There is a premium on original (but responsible) thinking.  Keep in mind the reliability of your source.  Is there bias?  Is the source from the appropriate time period?
