Summary
"As a child, Joseph Beck heard the stories--when other lawyers came up with excuses, his father courageously defended a black man charged with raping a white woman. Now a lawyer himself, Beck reconstructs his father's role in State of Alabama vs. Charles White, Alias, a trial that was much publicized when Harper Lee was twelve years old"--Dust jacket flap

Summary
Reconstructing his father’s defense of a black man charged with raping a white woman in 1938 and exploring the similarities between his father’s story and the one at the heart of To Kill a Mockingbird, the author presents a gripping narrative of how race, class and the memory of the South’s defeat in the Civil War produced the trial’s outcome
