BookTrib's Bites: Potpourri of History, Creativity, Women's Rights and Investing

By: NewsUSA


by Dyanna Morrison

What if our founding fathers could witness two recent court cases involving First Amendment protections and abuses? That's the basis of "Justice," the first of three thought-provoking plays in a trilogy, following the struggles and triumphs of newly seated Judge Grace Porter, with our framers watching through a one-way window in the courtroom.

The storyline artfully weaves between the present and the past, and as the proceedings unfold, it is interspersed with the thought processes our founding fathers used in framing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, that continue to steer the course of our democracy."Justice" conveys a palpable sense of hope that one strong and righteous mind can make the difference in changing our course of events.
