ARC OF JUSTICE
The Arc of Justice has been chosen as the first book of the One City, One Book project.
Historian Kevin Boyle tells the story of Detroit by weaving the police investigation and courtroom drama of the Sweet murder trial into an unforgettable tapestry. His narrative history documents the volatile America of the 1920s and movingly re-creates the Sweet family’s journey from slavery through the Great Migration to the middle class.
