An Evening With Steve Luxemberg

  • About

    The National Writers Series welcomes Steve Luxenberg, who will discuss his book Separate: The Story of Plessy V. Ferguson, and America’s Journey from Slavery to Segregation which tells the dramatic and compelling 19th century story of the case that cut to the heart of the battles over race and equality — battles that rage throughout American history and continue to the present day. Luxenberg draws from letters, diaries and archival collections and weaves together biography, history and legal drama on a grand scale. He re-creates the personalities and debates that informed the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy and shaped race relations for generations. For tickets and more info, please click here.
