Broads You Should Know

Mary Tape — Sued to Fight Segregation of Chinese-Americans in CA Schools [Sam Eggers]

November 4, 2020

This week, Sam brings us the story of Mary Tape!

Mary immigrated to the US from China as a child. She was raised Christian and eventually settled down to start a family in San Francisco. When her daughter was forbidden to attend the local public school, she sued the school district in one of the first challenges to America's "Separate but Equal" policy in the late 1800s!
