Description
Wilson reflects upon his role as the Kansas assistant attorney general assigned "to defend the indefensible" the policy of "separate but equal" that was overturned on May 17, 1954. His recollections recreate the world of 1950s Kansas, place the case in the context of those times and politics, describe the state's ambivalent defense, and proffer some lessons about his experience and the evolution of race relations since the ruling.
