For the general public the law has two sides, the wrong side, and the white side. For black Americans in these times, being caught on the wrong side is an all too common occurrence. Habeas Corpus does not include blacks, and legal representation is a sham. For Roosevelt Wilson it means a downward spiral into the abyss of doom. He has only a hand full of friends and sympathizers who could save him from his accusers, for a crime he is not guilty of, and they must put their own lives in jeopardy to help him.
