We Face the Dawn—Oliver Hill, Spottswood Robinson, and the Legal Team That Dismantled Jim Crow by Margaret Edds

February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is the first installment in the new Virginia House Book Club brought to you by a partnership between Shrine Mont and UVA Press

This book tells the story of Virginians, Oliver Hill and Spottswood Robinson, who initiated and argued one of five cases that combined in the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision. When Virginia’s General Assembly retaliated and tried to disbar them, they took the fight to the Supreme Court of the United States and won. This is powerful story of courage and determination.
