All Deliberate Speed:
ON MAY 17, 1954, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the doctrine of "separate but equal" was unconstitutional. Charles J. Ogletree, Jr., was not even two at the rime, and his family, farm workers in southern California, had scant knowledge of how keenly the ruling would affect them. In "All Deliberate Speed Ogletree examines the personal ramifications of the decision for him and his family--his childhood in the wake of the "Brown decision, his student days at Stanford and Harvard Law, his immersion in the Boston busing crisis--and its meaning for all Americans. Presenting a vivid pageant of historical characters including Thurgood Marshall. Martin Luther King, Jr., Earl Warren. Anita Hill, and Clarence Thomas, Ogletree discusses the ambivalence of our judicial system, the increasing legal challenges to affirmative action, and the issue of reparations. Informed throughout by brilliant legal insight, "All Deliberate Speed compellingly traces the history of race and integration in American society, and will promote intense debate and reconsideration.
