There are 2 comments on The Forgotten Court Case That Became American Racism’s Building Block

  1. I too was unfamiliar with the case — but not unaware that for most of U.S. Supreme Court history, except for some brief periods of time in the 20th century, the Court has been a barrier to racial equality and has blocked needed progress on so many issues. I look forward to reading the book.
