In Steve Luxenberg’s latest book, the award-winning author and associate editor at The Washington Post examines the landmark 1896 case which led to the implementation of Jim Crow legislation. Described by The New York Times as an “elegant history” of the country’s path from emancipation to segregation, Separate: The Story of Plessy v. Ferguson, and America’s Journey from Slavery to Segregation is a celebrated work that, in its earliest stages, earned the 2016 J. Anthony Lukas Award for excellence in nonfiction. Separate follows critical acclaim of Luxenberg’s first book, Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey into a Family Secret, which was honored as the 2013-2014 Great Michigan Read.
