The book is a cross between Bryan Stevenson's best-selling Just Mercy and Jeff Haas The Assassination of Fred Hampton, Lawrence, Hill a popular recounting of the history of Fred Hampton, his assassination, and the thirteen-year struggle for justice. 


Unfolding against the backdrop of Chicago politics from the late ‘60s to the present, [TAYLOR’S BOOK] is the political memoir of a tireless freedom fighter with a sense of humor; it is also a guide to the inner workings of the legal system, the importance of investigative reporting, and the power of community engagement to help turn the tide against police brutality.
