Rising Road resurrects an infamous murder trial of the 1920s South. As Sharon Davies reveals with novelistic richness, the trial laid bare the most potent bigotries of the Jim Crow era: a hatred not only of blacks, but of Catholics and "foreigners" as well. In one of the case's most unexpected turns, the murderer hired future U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black to lead his defense.
