    The law prohibited racial discrimination in juries, and all forms of public transportation and public                    accommodation throughout the United States.                                                                                                                It’s provisions applied to inns, places of amusement, public conveyances and juries.  

    Mixed schools, churches, and cemeteries were stricken out.                                                                                                             

    The Supreme Court declared the law unconstitutional.                                                                                          

    Unconstitutional  “On the grounds that the 14th amendment gave Congress no power to legislate against                      discrimination by individuals, only against discrimination by states."
