A Crime on the Bayou

In 1966, Gary Duncan, a Black teenager from Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, was arrested for trying to break up an argument between white and Black teenagers outside a newly integrated school. With the help of a young Jewish attorney, Richard Sobol, who left his prestigious D.C. law firm to volunteer in New Orleans, Duncan bravely stands up to a racist legal system powered by a white supremacist boss to challenge his unfair arrest. Duncan and Sobol’s fight goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and a lifelong friendship is forged.
