Devil In The Grove book about Thurgood Marshall by Gilbert King  "Devil In The Grove: Thurgood Marshall, The Groveland Boys, and The Dawn of A New America"
[2012] 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 . . .

comment by Syreeta McFadden: Only in America can a dead black boy go on trial for his own murder       murdered Trayvon Martin, age 17

Citizens and officials of the State of Florida allowed the murderer of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin to go scott free
after putting Trayvon on trial; the prosecution and the judge and Florida TV journalists decided in advance that the black kid was guilty;
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!
