Summary
"In 1958 William L. Taylor wrote the victorious Supreme Court brief that forced Little Rock, Arkansas, schools to maintain desegregation even in the face of mass violence and civil disorder. In this historic book, Taylor recalls the triumphs, setbacks, and ongoing challenges in the battle for equal justice from his own unique and influential perspective."--BOOK JACKET
