Lawrence Goldstone, Ph.D. “Stolen Justice: The Supreme Court and the Coming of Jim Crow”

Lawrence GoldstoneA discussion of how the Supreme Court, in a series of cases from the 1870’s to 1903, under the same philosophy of strict construction favored by the present Court’s conservative majority, literally rewrote the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, stripping the guarantees and protections of citizenship from African-Americans, and thereby allowed Southern states to usher in the era of Jim Crow.
