Seay's memoir takes a different tack from most civil rights legal autobiographies: in a series of compact, powerful vignettes, he reveals dramatic courtroom moments; the complex personalities of segregation's victims, heroes, and oppressors; and the emotional highs and lows of using the law to seek justice where it too often had been an empty promise.In crisp, often elegant prose, Seay paints pictures of a Southern way of life that thankfully has been dismantled, with much of the dismantling by his own hands.
