Book Talk: Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America’s Journey from Slavery to Segregation

February 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$5

Plessy v. Ferguson, the infamous legal case that upheld the racist notion of “separate but equal,” codified segregation and launched one of our county’s most depraved chapters. Long-time senior editor at The Washington Post, Steve Luxenberg, examines the social upheaval that gave rise to Plessy, and looks at those who supported the ruling and championed its dissent.
