One of the most enlightening books I've ever read (and I highly recommend it to everyone) is Simple Justice by Richard Kluger. (Image in next tweet.)
It purports to be a history of Brown v. Board of Education, but it's a history of African Americans.
I came away with this . . .
Take away from Simple Justice: We started fighting the Civil War when the Constitution was being drafted, and we were still fighting it when Brown v. Board (the Supreme Court case that desegregated schools) was decided.
Now we're still riding the backlash from Brown v. Board.
