Summary
"Part courtroom drama, part adventure story, Rudolph M. Lapp's Archy Lee captures the essence of the celebrated 1858 trial of an alleged fugitive slave in California. When Archy Lee is arrested in Sacramento for refusing to return to Mississippi with his ''master,'' his status in the free state of California becomes the focus of controversy. Lapp tells of the narrow escapes, disappearances, legal maneuvers, and tenacity involved in the black community's fight for civil rights, and the throngs of people--black and white--who took to the streets in celebration of Archy's eventual release"--
