Southwests Segregated Past

Southwests Segregated Past

In this Tuesday, July 30, 2019 photo, activists Lawrence Robinson poses for a photograph 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. Decades later, tensions in Phoenix’s minority communities remain, spilling over this summer after video of police officers pointing guns and cursing at a black couple revived disturbing memories of the days of segregation, when black and Hispanic residents recall commonly being mistreated by police.
