It is easy for litigants who appear in front of Judge William Alsup to assume that his Deep South Mississippi roots from the 1950s and 1960s would make him a man who could not be fair and just to their clients. However, nothing could be further from the truth. And this is actually the exact situation that inspired Alsup to sit down and write this captivating and heart-wrenching story.

Alsup grew up in segregated Mississippi in the time when civil rights campaigns were flourishing throughout the nation. While his parents never raised him to hate another person based on race, they did hold segregationist views. Alsup takes readers back to a time when he was still figuring out who he was. And it’s clear that he and the friends he chose cared about equal rights and fighting to make their community and country a better place for all.
