Jay JenningsWhitaker's facts don't differ fundamentally from those in Grif Stockley's 2001 account, Blood in Their Eyes, a work of dogged and indispensable research, but that book became bogged down by the weight of its details.

At the same time, he has revived the story of a great African-American lawyer, Scipio Africanus Jones.
