A Crime on the Bayou tells the story of a lasting bond formed between an unjustly arrested African American man, Gary Duncan, and Richard Sobol, his young Jewish attorney. In 1966, 19-year-old Duncan faced the white supremacist court system in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, for daring to touch a white boy’s arm. Standing united, the pair took the case all the way to the US Supreme Court to fight for the rights of all Americans to a fair trial.
