Summary
Follows the experiences of a white family from a racist suburb and a black family from Houston's most disadvantaged community who cross color lines to defend five black college students charged with the murder of a policeman
Summary
This semi-autobiographical tale is set in 1967 Texas, against the backdrop of the fight for civil rights. A white family from a notoriously racist neighborhood in the suburbs and a black family from its poorest ward cross Houstons color line, overcoming humiliation, degradation, and violence to win the freedom of five black college students unjustly charged with the murder of a policeman. --Publisher
