Commentaries on Law, Language & Politics
 Alexander M. Bickel, The Original Understanding and the Segregation Decision, 69 Harv. L. Rev. 1(1955)
 “…we cannot turn the clock back to 1868
when the Amendment was adopted, or even to 1896 when
Plessy v. Ferguson 
 was written. We must consider public education in the light of its full development and its present place in  American life throughout the Nation. Only
in this way can it be determined if
segregation in public schools deprives these plaintiffs of the equal protection of
the laws.” 
School Integration - Parents Involved v. Seattle 2
Freedmen’s Bureau Act (1865)

direction of the President, shall have authority to set apart, for the use of loyal
refugees and freedmen, such tracts of
land within the insurrectionary states as shall have been abandoned, or to which
the United States shall have acquired title
by confiscation or sale, or otherwise, and to every male citizen, whether refugee or freedman, as aforesaid, there shall be assigned not more than forty acres of such land
