The year was 1925. A young copyboy, just out of college, was given the job of reporter. Not only was he fulfilling his life’s dream, he was reporting on a trial that became the interest of the nation.
In a small rural town in Alabama in 1925, a man was prosecuted for a capital crime. Was he tried fairly based on the facts? Did the town people get so caught up in the excitement of their exposure from the trial that justice was placed by the wayside? Was there a predestined outcome for this trial with the accuser being an elderly white woman and the accused being her gardener, an elderly black man.
Tho slavery had been over for many years, the teachings were passed down from previous generations. “White was Right,” with no questions asked.
The Injustice of Justice shows just how deeply the separation by color was and of the consequences. The story may tug at your conscience and your heart. Either way, it may be an emotional experience that will leave you sympathetic to an elderly black man named “Jake.”

This book was a great book. I beleive that everyone should have a chance to read it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and interested unlike other books. It also makes you feel as though you are part of the story. Actually as though you were there with the charechters of the story and feeling how they feel. It bings you back to that time period and relize what people had to go through.
