Free read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Steve Luxenberg Steve Luxenberg ´ 2 Summary Summary Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America's Journey from Slavery to Segregation And the countrys best known white advocate for civil rights; Justice Henry Billings Brown from antislavery New England whose majority ruling sanctioned separation; Justice John Harlan the Southerner from a slaveholding family whose singular dissent cemented his reputation as a steadfast voice for justice Sweeping swiftly paced and richly detailed Separate is an urgently needed exploration of our nations most devastating divide. There are any number of studies of the Supreme Court s 1896 decision in Plessy v Ferguson which held that separate but eual was constitutional in railroad transportation a doctrine that was applied consistently in many areas including public education until the 1954 Court decision in Brown v Board of Education This very long book 505 pages of text 58 pages of notes approaches the topic from an uniue perspective somewhat broader than a traditional legal history wouldThe author begins his study in 1833 with Massachusetts railroads segregating passengers by race and traces this practice up until 1896 Moreover he focuses upon three key players in the Plessy drama Justices John Marshall Harlan and Henry Billings Brown and Albion W Tourgee who lost the case through extensive biographical studies In short the author here is devoted to establishing the context of the case and the individual histories of these three actors going all the way back to 1833 He demonstrates that to really understand this case you have to do a lot than merely read the Court s decisionThe author s discussions of the two Justices especially Harlan are outstanding While there is not much to Brown who wrote the 8 1 decision upholding the practice Harlan is a fascinating character While fighting on the Union side in the Civil War in Kentucky he never opposed slavery and hoped Lincoln would just restore the status uo ante and not interfere in his state He was certainly no flaming liberal and how he came to write his dissent in well covered in the book Tourgee was a driven opponent of the practice especially after having lived in North Carolina for 17 years after the war He really achieved fame not for his work in this case but as a best selling novelist While his arguments to the Court were sound he was way ahead of his time Any analysis of the Court by Tourgee and his allies would have to have demonstrated clearly that their chances were zero with the Court s membership It seems the Justices simply didn t see what injury was inflicted by Jim Crow cars I think this is why Chief Justice Warren in his opinion striking the practice in public education placed reliance upon sociological evidence such as the black doll studies by Kenneth Clark to demonstrate the severe emotional injuries inflicted upon segregated school childrenOne of the most interesting things I learned was that the Plessy case was a fully staged test casewith with both sides including the railroad working together to present the issue to the Court The book is not blessed with extensive legal analysis but that is not why you read this study What the author gets to better than anything else I have read is the story behind the story regarding the case If you really really want to understand what Plessy is all about this is the book to read What happened in 1896 is not so much the story as is why it happened That is what this fine book is all about
