Professor Mark Elliott talked about his book, Color Blind Justice: Albion Tourgée and the Quest for Racial Equality from the Civil War to Plessy v. Ferguson.

Tourgee helped draft the North Carolina state constitution and served as a superior court judge. In 1896 he served as lead attorney in the Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson, which he lost.
