It's Easy to Talk Justice is a case study of the civil rights complaint: Hudson versus Philander Smith College. It details a female plaintiff’s legal challenge against her employer.

The author shares the story of a 3 year legal battle between a young woman plaintiff (Hudson) and a historic college (Philander Smith College). The author discovered evidence on the Internet that contradicted the defense of Philander Smith and other named college defendants.

Hudson contests the false accusations of her former employer despite the fact that she is fighting against four senior administrators and a powerful board of trustees supported by a prestigious law firm. The book describes her uphill battle to challenge the College leadership in her quest for a fair resolution and illustrates how the values of integrity and kindness are absent in the midst of employment disputes.

The book demonstrates how difficult it is to seek justice when a large institution has an impressive public image with powerful leaders at the helm equipped to use inaccurate narratives as a means to discredit a complaint.
