Powerful Photo of the Day: Keith Plessy and Phoebe Ferguson -- direct descendants of Homer Adolph Plessy and John Howard Ferguson of the infamous racial-segregation-upholding Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson -- stand on the very same spot in New Orleans where Plessy was arrested for refusing to move from the whites-only rail car, triggering the landmark case.

Keith, the great-grandson of Homer
