The Haunting of Jim Crow

4/18/2005; 80 minutes

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that declared racially segregated schools unconstitutional, The Haunting of Jim Crow examines the events surrounding that momentous decision by weaving together the personal stories and reflections of two key protagonists, civil rights attorney (later Supreme Court Justice) Thurgood Marshall and segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond. The result is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional, and intensely personal interpretation of history. The play was written by UCSD Theatre professor Allan Havis. (#9386)
