- We can order this
In this engrossing memoir, Ophelia De Laine Gona, the daughter of Reverend De Laine, becomes the first to cite and adequately credit the forces responsible for filing Briggs. Based on Reverend De Laine's writings and papers, witness testimonies, and the author's personal knowledge, Gona's memoir fills a gap in civil rights history by providing a poignant insider's view of the events and personalities-including NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall and federal district judge J. Waties Waring-central to this trailblazing case.
