Ohio State University history professor Kevin Boyle talks about his book Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age. Boyle uses the trial of Ossian Sweet, an African American doctor who was defended on murder charges by the famous lawyer Clarence Darrow, to explore the history of race relations in the U.S. during the 1920s.
