For example, in “A Look to the Future,” King described a precedence of the government enacting laws confirming what the public held to be true, such as the Dred Scott decision during the age of slavery and the Plessy v. Ferguson decision during the time of segregation. King believed, that with a majority of the public favorable to a new time of integration, a similar government confirmation would arise. He explained that this pattern was already starting to be confirmed through the Brown v. Board of Education decision, “which came to give legal and constitutional validity to the dominant thought patterns of this period.” After these three stages represented through the government decisions, Kind exclaimed that “we have moved through the wilderness of ‘separate, but equal,’ and now we stand on the border of the promised land of integration” .
