Common Cause: Phoebe Ferguson and Keith Plessy in Conversation with President Jenifer K. Ward

April 19, 2023

6-7pm

The U.S. Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson is a landmark decision in the history of American law and structures of racism. Luther College is honored to welcome Phoebe Ferguson and Keith Plessy, descendents of the people at the center of that historical case, for a conversation with President Jenifer K. Ward. Plessy and Ferguson model the productive work of finding common cause. Together on stage, they will explore their approaches to using knowledge of, and accounting for, the past in order to fuel and forge a more just future. The conversation will likely range from the story of how they came together in common cause to their philosophies and practices of activism and their perspectives on how the U.S. Supreme Court shapes us.
