Beschreibung:

A true story, based on court records, correspondences, and newspaper accounts past and present, this stunning historical achievement brilliantly illuminates an extraordinary event in the long, dark history of slavery in America. In 1850, 14-year-old Celia became the property of Robert Newsome, a prosperous and respected Missouri farmer. For the next five years she was cruelly and repeatedly molested by her abusive master. But in 1855, driven to the limits of her endurance, Celia fought back. And at the tender age of 18, the frightened young black woman found herself on trial for Newsome's murder--the defendant in a landmark courtroom battle that threatened to undermine the very foundations of the South's most cherished institution.
