        The Supreme Court | The Civil Rights Cases

        In 1883, the Supreme Court struck down the Civil Rights Cases of 1875. As the nation grew weary of Reconstruction, the Supreme Court followed suit, ruling that while the Fourteenth Amendment protected an individual’s rights in places of public accommodation, it would not protect citizens from the discriminatory behavior of individuals. This video, from the series The Supreme Court, explores the case that led to the Court’s first great dissent, its first great dissenter, and the end of Reconstruction.
