As the civil rights struggle heats up in Texas, two families — one white, one black — find common ground. This semi-autobiographical tale is set in 1967 Texas, against the backdrop of the fight for civil rights. A white family from a notoriously racist neighbourhood in the suburbs and a black family from its poorest ward cross Houston's colour line, overcoming humiliation, degradation, and violence to win the freedom of five black college students unjustly charged with the murder of a policeman. Written by Mark Long and Jim Demonakos, with art and a cover by Nate Powell.
