After the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in April 1968, a Catholic priest and theology professor, Father John Brooks, at the College of the Holy Cross sought out young black men to integrate into a, then, all-while school. Among the 20 young men he found were a future Supreme Court justice, a Pulitzer Prize winner and one of the most successful defense attorneys in the country. Author Diane Brady chronicles the stories of five of those young men in her book Fraternity.
