Scholars Lecture: Dissent in Our Democracy – Steve Luxenberg, Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America’s Journey from Slavery to Segregation
Tuesday, February 11, 2020 06:30 PM
John Jay Homestead State Historic Site

Separate traces the careful building in 1896 of a test case to establish freedom from race-based segregation in public accommodations. The strategy backfired badly in Plessy v. Ferguson, when the Supreme Court ruled "separate but equal" did not violate the Constitution. Justice John Marshall Harlan was the sole dissenter, declaring that "the Constitution is color-blind' and it would take 60 years to reverse the precedent, in Brown v. Board of Education. Luxenberg is an associate editor at The Washington Post, and winner of two Pulitzer prizes. 7:00pm lecture (registration and refreshments starting at 6:30pm), followed by a book signing. Reservations are recommended. $25; $20 for members.
