| ||"Devil In The Grove: Thurgood Marshall, The Groveland Boys, and The Dawn of A New America"|
 by Gilbert King
New York Times bestseller, won the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction; in 1946 Florida, Jim Crow policies were enforced by the Lake County sheriff; when a white girl cried rape, the Ku Klux Klan swarmed to Groveland, burning black-owned homes and chasing around after the four accused Afro-American teenagers. After one N.A.A.C.P. worker was murdered, lawyer Thurgood Marshall – even though he was quite busy preparing Brown v. Board of Education to go before the Supreme Court – stepped into the fray, resulting in a series of threats on his life. But he just would not back down . . .

the six-member all-white cracker jury did as was expected of them and approved the one-man lynch party.
The people of the State of Florida should be ashamed!
