Missouri ex rel. Gaines v. Canada by Charles Evans Hughes

Missouri ex rel. Gaines v. Canada, 305 U.S. 337 (1938), was a United States Supreme Court decision holding that states that provide a school to white students must provide in-state education to blacks as well. States can satisfy this requirement by allowing blacks and whites to attend the same school or creating a second school for blacks. Excerpted from Missouri ex rel. Gaines v.
