Freaknik Lawyer Lands July 27!
Cascade Publishing House is pleased to announce the publication of the next Harold Michael Harvey book!
It is titled, Freaknik Lawyer: A Memoir on the Craft of Resistance.
In fifty-four thousand words, Harvey masterfully weaves his life and our collective lives around the world of legal segregation and the aftermath of the apparent demise of “separate but equal.” He does this by introducing the reader to two new concepts: The Curse of Plessy and The Promise of Brown.
Through the pages of Freaknik lawyer, Harvey makes the reader feel how Black people felt living in America after the Plessy v. Ferguson case (1896), legalized Jim Crow. Then Harvey takes the reader into the unfulfilled lives Blacks have endured with the delayed implementation of the 1954 and 1955 Brown decisions, and without one mention of the R-word, Harvey makes a convincing case for reparations and equal justice under the law.
Freaknik Lawyer is Harvey’s best work to date in terms of content, style, and pace.
While Freaknik Lawyer pertains to Harvey’s role in providing free legal representation to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) students in Atlanta in the mid-1990s, it also highlights the pertinence of these two court cases to actions taken against the students.
