World Events (8)

1896 · Plessy vs. Ferguson

A landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities if the segregated facilities were equal in quality. It's widely regarded as one of the worst decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history.

1906 · The Atlanta Race Riot

The Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 occurred on the evening of September 22 through September 24. A newspaper reported the rapes of four white women by African American men. Fueled by pre-existing racial tensions, these reports enraged white men who then arranged gangs to attack African American men. Over the next few days, several thousand white men joined in and in the end, 26 people were killed and many were injured.

1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.

Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire): from the Middle English personal name Spivi, of unexplained etymology. There is a slight possibility that it could be a pet form of ancient Germanic Spirwig, attested in the patronymic of a Norman tenant, Eudo filius Spireuuic, 1086 in Domesday Book (Lincolnshire). The alteration of Spivey to Spib(e)y, as if it were from a placename, seems to occurs from the 15th century, but the letters -v- and -b- are often difficult to distinguish at this time and during the following century, so the phonetic change may have occurred later.
