January 2020 Book Club

Pulitzer Prize winning author Steve Luxenberg will speak at the fourth annual OLLI book club on Wed., Jan. 29, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon in Room A. Luxenberg will discuss his much-acclaimed book, Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America's Journey from Slavery to Segregation.

Separate is a fascinating and highly relevant analysis of the Supreme Court ruling of "separate but equal" in Plessy v. Furgeson, which was overturned by the decision to integrate schools in Brown  v. Board of Education. Luxenberg makes an incisive and provocative examination into not only the Plessy decision and its major participants, but also the continuing issues of equality and racism in America.
