On June 7, 1892 Homer Plessy bought a first class ticket and boarded a "whites only" car of the East Louisiana Railroad in New Orleans. This was a test case organized by the Comite de Citoyens, with Plessy being chosen for "being white enough to gain access to the train and black enough to be arrested for doing so."
