    One thought on “Unlikely Heroes”

    1. A comprehensive and fascinating look at the judges who worked to integrate the South. These men made the decisions others would have been afraid to make. The books over along well. My one criticism is that the author does not always give you the backdrop of a case so you need to figure out the issue.
