Ben Crump - Open Season
Benjamin Crump firmly believes in the Constitution and its legal protectionsthat civil rights legislation covers all Americans, not just those privileged by race, wealth, or pedigree. A fierce and passionate advocate, he has devoted his career to fighting for justice for Americas marginalized. "Open Season" is his inspiring journey working on some of the most egregious cases that have shocked the nation, including those of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.
Shaped by his first-hand experience handling civil litigation matters in state and federal courts throughout the country, "Open Season" reveals the often hidden and systemic injustices minorities face, and illuminates how discrimination in the courthouse devastates real families and communities. Chronicling some of his most memorable legal battles, this brilliant litigator shockingly makes clear how our system is devised for certain people to lose and others to win, and, using evidence and facts, exposes how it is legal to harmwith the intent to destroypeople of color.
America must live up to its promise to protect the rights of its citizens equally, Crump maintains. Thoughtful, well-reasoned, and powerfully persuasive, "Open Season" details one man's life mission preserving the hard-won justice for all.
