Mosaic brings to life the story of the 60s murder of a woman who was a doctor who courted danger trying to dismantle a racially segregated healthcare system in a large southern city. The search for who ordered the killing takes civil rights lawyer Christopher North to the centers of power, where a government intervention goes deadly wrong. It also forces him to confront the meaning of revenge—she wasn’t just a client to him—for a crime that occurs at the intersection of hate and greed. Michael Meltsner, a civil rights lawyer who brought the case that ultimately led to the push to integrate medical facilitates previously barred to Black patients and doctors, will discuss how his experience in this role inspired his recent true crime novel.
