Michael discusses how his book "The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case" is a first in-depth account of this historical event, chronicling the crime from time it was committed, to a very public investigation, all the way up to the sensational trial. He gives us a snapshot of the Reconstruction-era South will all of its political, social, and racial nuances. He hints at the perfect storm that made the Mollie Digby kidnapping front-page news across the nation. Michael describes the two women accused of this crime as Afro-Creole, extraordinarily polished, beautiful, and stylish.
Michael will be lecturing at the Clinton School of Public Service, Wednesday, October 22nd at 6:00 p.m. Followed by a book signing.
