Racial prejudice is a sensitive topic to be discussed. It is an occurrence that, ugly as it is, still happens in today’s society. In his desire to find out where this concept started, author Ethan Malveaux researched and wrote an informative book that reveals where everything commenced.

The Color Line: A History dates back to Ancient Europe, Ancient Rome in particular, and smoothly transitions to the Supreme Court Case Plessy v. Ferguson to provide a very clear view of the evolution of present racial prejudices or ethnic biases.
