Notes:
In 1947, James Hickman shot dead the landlord he believed responsible for a fire which took the lives of 4 of his children in Chicago. Prosecutors sought a death sentence for Hickman, but a defence campaign exposed how poverty & racism led to his crime & helped Hickman win his freedom. Joe Allen tells the story of that campaign.
