Justice for the Black Knight by Jerri Blair
It was awarded the prestigious star by Kirkus Reviews which called it “…superbly crafted…intricately detailed…a must-read story of relationships, prejudice and bravery, a vivid paeon for justice.”
Red City Review wrote that Justice for the Black Knight “…quite astutely tackles the topic of racism, combining the best attributes of legal thrillers like ‘The Firm’ with the exploratory and contemplative tone of subtle but powerful works of literature like Ralph Ellison’s ‘Invisible Man.”
Clarion Reviews called it “…a twentieth-century law and order fable…that has the feel of a true-crime mystery, coming of age novel, and high stakes courtroom drama rolled into one…” This historic saga tells the tale of evolving racial justice in the American judicial system.
