Southwests Segregated Past

In this Tuesday, July 30, 2019 photo, activist Lawrence Robinson, right, talks with Jeanette Murphy, at the Post 65 American Legion hall, formed during the era of segregation and recently renovated in Phoenix. Three American Legion posts stand within miles of each other in central Phoenix, a curious reminder of how segregation once ruled the U.S. Southwest as well as the Deep South. Post 65 draws a largely black crowd. “It’s affordable, and there is camaraderie,” said Robinson, who attends legion events with friends. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)
