Carl Maxey came from a childhood in the scandal-ridden Spokane Children's Home to make a name for himself, first as an NCAA championship boxer, and then as eastern Washington's first black lawyer and a renowned civil rights attorney who always fought for the underdog. Journalist Jim Kershner creates a moving portrait of the man called a OType-A GandhiO by the New York Times.
"Reads like a modern Dickens tale." "-Law and Politics"
"An essential biography of one city's civil rights hero, wonderfully written and impeccably researched." -Jess Walter, author of "The Zero"
Jim Kershner is a journalist for "The Spokesman-Review" in Spokane.
