In this buried chapter of American history, a nearly forgotten case of famed attorney Clarence Darrow comes hauntingly to the surface. In 1925 the NAACP approached Darrow to defend Ossian Sweet -- a highly respected black doctor who, after integrating an all-white neighborhood in Detroit, found himself the victim of a community attack. When Sweet and his family fought back, they were caught in a melee in which a white man was fatally shot.
The trial that ensued, one of the most urgent and compelling in the nation's history, would test the basic tenets of the American Dream -- the right of a man to defend his own home.
Tautly researched and harrowingly reported, "One Man's Castle" is an "important slice of American legal history and the history of the civil rights" (Kirkus Reviews).
