Summary
Zora Neale Hurston "received an assignment from the Pittsburgh Courier to cover the murder trial of Ruby McCollum, a wealthy colored woman accused of slaying a white physician who had recently been elected to the Florida state senate - and rumored to be her lover. Intrigued by what she considered a case of paramour rights, Hurston accepted the Courier assignment. What she discovered in the small town of Live Oak was a story of interracial sex, greed, drugs and murder, concealed by the guilty silence of its fearful citizens"--Back cover
