Professor Michael Ross will discuss his latest work, The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case: Race, Law and Justice in the Reconstruction Era. In this book, Ross offers the first full account of the kidnapping of seventeen-month-old Mollie Digby by two African American women. This event electrified the South at one of the most critical moments in the history of American race relations.
