Separate and Unequal

Harvey Fireside with special intro by Alan Dershowitz

Original price was: $69.95.Current price is: $64.95.

On June 7, 1892, Homer A. Plessy, a New Orleans shoemaker, boarded a “Whites Only” railroad coach. He was then ordered to move to a car set aside by state law for Negroes—and so began the legal crusade that culminated in one of the most infamous decisions in Supreme Court history – Plessy v. Ferguson, that upheld segregation under the “separate but equal” reasoning. Separate and Unequal combines judicial records and historic photographs with a richly evocative portrait of the Jim Crow era and a tale of the personal heroism of Homer Plessy; lawyer Albion Tourgée, who argued his case pro bono; and Justice John Marshall Harlan, the decision’s sole dissenter.
