Copies of this book will be distributed at the February 11, 2020 meeting. After that meeting, extra copies will be available at the Circulation Desk.

In the early 1970s, three African-American men - Wiley Bridgeman, Kwame Ajamu, and Rickey Jackson- were accused and convicted of the brutal robbery and murder of a man outside of a convenience store in Cleveland, Ohio. The prosecution’s case, which resulted in a combined 106 years in prison for the three men, rested on the more-than-questionable testimony of a pre-teen, Ed Vernon.

The actual murderer was never found. Almost four decades later, Vernon recanted his testimony, and Wiley, Kwame, and Rickey were released. But while their exoneration may have ended one of American history’s most disgraceful miscarriages of justice, the corruption and decay of the city responsible for their imprisonment remain on trial.
