In 1950, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Henderson v. United States, struck down racially segregated railroad dining cars.

The 18-year-old black man was fatally shot by a white officer, Darren Wilson, in August 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury declined to indict Wilson, and the U.S. Justice Department opted against civil rights charges. Wilson later resigned.
