The authors examine the lives of a trailblazing attorney and her family of understudied social-justice pioneers whose work spans nearly 100 years and three continents. Set against a background of the sensational Lucky Luciano mob trial, slavery, segregation and patriarchy, the story of Eunice Hunton Carter and her family offers a glimpse into the sensational mob trial of 1936 as well as race, gender, law and politics in Depression-era America.
