Louisiana Supreme Court

What does a lawyer do when you take him to the French quarter in New Orleans? He finds the nearest courthouse, which in this case was the Louisiana Supreme Court. Sarah asked to be photographed with the statue of United States Chief Justice Edward Douglass White, who voted with the majority in favor of the "separate but equal" doctrine pronounced in Plessy v. Ferguson. White's statue has recently been restored. Check out the before and after photos.

A snapshot of the marker for Homer Plessy's grave in Saint Louis Cemetery Number One is below.
