Plessy v Ferguson

I was not born in the United States, so lack experience regarding many of the historical issues of racism. The prisoners with whom I worked brought Plessy vs Ferguson to my attention.  This morning's Washington Post had a reminder of this landmark case.  Reading it reminded me of the inmates- 5 days into my retirement.

Hi Peggy,
I'm a library science student from Boston, Massachusetts. I'm beginning a survey study of prison librarians and how they establish "return on investment" or value of their libraries. Can you give me any advice about conducting the study (how to find contact information for prison librarians, specifically)? I'd also be interested in any insights you can make into the subject of ROI and prison libraries. Thanks very much for any help you can offer!
