In her harrowing new book, Rising Road: A True Tale of Love, Race, and Religion in America, Sharon Davies sheds new light on the all but forgotten murder of Father Coyle in 1912 Birmingham, Alabama, and the subsequent trial of the man who shot him, Reverend Edwin Stephenson, where one of the defense lawyers was future Supreme Court Justice, Hugo Black. Placing this story in full social and historical context, Davies brings to life a heinous crime and its aftermath in an in-depth examination of the consequences of prejudice in the Jim Crow era. Davies is the John C. Elam/Vorys Sater Designated Professor of Law at OSU’s Moritz College of Law and a specialist in criminal law and procedure. (thurberhouse)
