From the Publisher
Annotation The Jim Crow years between the 1896 landmark Supreme Court decisions of Plessy v. Ferguson, which promoted "separate but equal" public facilities, and the groundbreaking 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling that public schools had to be integrated, were a terrible period of time in United States history. This compelling history candidly documents the African American experience during decades of government-sponsored inequality. With original sources, interviews, and photographs.
