Summary
Originally published in 1962, this book is the true account of Gomillion v. Lightfoot, a case concerned with the denial of Negro voting rights in Tuskegee, Alabama in order to politically manipulate that township's boundaries, and the first case of its kind to be argued before the Supreme Court. Brilliantly and accurately documented, this is a probing report by Bernard Taper, one of the leading reporters for The New Yorker magazine, who traveled first to Tuskegee and later to Washington, in order to skillfully weave together the background material and the entire case. Taper followed the case from its inception in 1957, through to the personal reactions of Tuskegee's citizens as they became involved, and finally to the Supreme Court in 1960, where he provides a remarkable portrait of the court action and of the Justices as they worked toward their final decision...A gripping read
