Great snapshot of America. Plessy vs. Ferguson in 1896, which codified Jim Crow in this country, was devastating to African America. The lawsuit began over street car seating and would spread to all areas of life. It's great to read the passionate response by Republicans of the day.
--Thanks for posting, Lawrence. I especially enjoy being able to read the quotes from the legislators' debate, which we usually don't get from the history books. I always have my eye out for this type of material.
