Pulitzer Prize-winning book about Thurgood Marshall, the horror of Jim Crow laws, and the “Florida Terror” in pursuit of “the Groveland Boys.”

This book was given to me by a friend’s husband, so there is an inscription on the inside of the front cover that reads: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE COMMIE FRIEND! ENJOY. JAY.” (See photo.)

Yes, I know: hilARious.
