A chorus of stringed instruments accompanies narrator Adenrele Ojo as she introduces young listeners to the life of Mary Hamilton, an African-American civil rights activist. Miss Hamilton was routinely arrested while protesting in the early 1960s. During the various legal processes, she refused to respond when referred to by her first name only, setting the stage for the Supreme Court case Hamilton v. Alabama. Miss Hamilton's case upheld the right of Blacks to the same courtesies as whites with regard to forms of address during legal processes. Ojo offers listeners an impeccably paced and forthright performance combined with a musical score that suggests the conflict of the Civil Rights movement and reflects Miss Hamilton's success in establishing dignified civil discourse for all in our justice system.
