Steve Luxenberg
Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America’s Journey from Slavery to Segregation

Join us when this award-winning author presents the story of the case synonymous with “separate but equal,” the outcome of which embraced and protected segregation. Sweeping, swiftly paced, and richly detailed, Separate provides a fresh and urgently-needed exploration of our nation’s most devastating divide.

Separate spans a striking range of characters and landscapes, bound together by the defining issue of their time and ours–race and equality. Wending its way through a half-century of American history, the narrative begins at the dawn of the railroad age, in the North, home to the nation’s first separate railroad car, then moves briskly through slavery and the Civil War to Reconstruction and its aftermath, as separation took root in nearly every aspect of American life.
