Author Kevin Boyle speaks to a full house at Cooley Law School
Kevin Boyle, author of Arc of Justice, spoke to an audience
of more than 250 people at the Thomas M. Cooley Law School’s
Cooley Center on Tuesday, October 25. The book is touted as an
electrifying account of a real-life murder. The story began when
an African American physician purchased a home in a white Detroit
neighborhood in 1925. This year's Michigan Humanities Council selected
Arc of Justice for its statewide reading initiative. Boyle’s
visit was part of the Capital Area District Library’s special
events, all of which were related to the themes presented in the
book. Michigan Court of Appeals Judge William C. Whitbeck led the
interview-format presentation with Boyle.
