Summary
Going Up On the Way Down is an essay written by Leroy Mason (b. 1939) about desegregation in the Virginia State Penitentiary in February and July 1968. Beginning with a description of segregated conditions upon his arrival in 1965, Mason recounts the breaking of the color barrier within the prison in February 1968 and the July 1968 strike of prisoners and guards. Two integration suits were brought as a result of these events: Mason v. Peyton and Landman v. Royster
