DEEP DELTA JUSTICE A Black Teen, His Lawyer, and Their Groundbreaking Battle for Civil Rights in the South

by | Read by Brad Sanders

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In a deep, resonant voice, narrator Brad Sanders describes the brackish backwaters and bayous of southern Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish, where the idea of equal rights for African-Americans was held back for decades. At the center of this excellent overview of the 1950-60s Civil Rights Movement is a 1966 incident in which a 19-year-old Black man unintentionally touched a white high school student while trying to break up a fight. The man was arrested and convicted without a trial. In a tone of pride and with a fine ear for Southern accents, Sanders recounts the rest of the story. The man didn’t back down and took the case all the way to the Supreme Court. The right to a trial by jury is now the law of the land.
