Beginning with the organizing in advance of the tragic 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson ruling, most of the Separate No More is dedicated to the early late 19th and early 20th century, including the role of Ida B. Wells, the NAACP, W. E. B. Du Bois, the Springfield “Riot,” Charles Hamilton Houston, the Howard University Law School, Thurgood Marshall, and many more people and institutions. He also outlines the key court cases that provided a path forward, and sometimes a setback, on the road to Brown.
