Product Description
In this powerful exploration of the 150-year struggle against Jim Crow education, Irons weaves together vivid portraits of lawyers and judges, such as Thurgood Marshall and Earl Warren; sketches of numerous black children whose parents joined lawsuits against Jim Crow schools; and gripping courtroom drama scenes to show how the erosion of the Brown decision-especially through the Court's rulings in the past three decades-has led to the "resegregation" of public education in America. 376 pages
