“This book told a story that I had never heard before. Not only was it a story about a legendary author (Zora Neale Hurston) and her adventures covering the hot topic of the day it offers historical perspective into the 30's,40's and 50's in the south...”

was a crime of passion, as Ruby McCollum burst through the "colored" entrance of Dr. Adams' office and shot him 4 times during a heated argument, shortly after he was elected to the Florida State Senate.Rumors spread that the murder was over a doctor bill, yet the McCollums were wealthy operators of the illegal gambling operation known as "bolita," and were always known for paying their bills. It was only later that "outsiders" were to discover the true motive for the murder, and rip through the thin veneer of Southern civility to expose the sordid world of liquor, gambling, drugs, sex and illicit dealings between "whites" and "coloreds" that lay beneath the surface.The ensuing high profile trial in Live Oak, Florida hit the headlines of all the major newspapers, and marked the first time that a woman of color was allowed to take the stand and witness against a white man who forced her to have his children.Zora Hurston covered the trial for the Pittsburgh Courier, the newspaper with the largest circulation to African-Americans at that time.Largely lost to history, this landmark trial was given new life when Dr. C. Arthur Ellis, Jr., who knew all of the characters in the story, published State of Florida vs. Ruby McCollum, an annotated copy of the trial transcript containing the testimony of Ruby McCollum. He then published Zora Hurston and the Strange Case of Ruby McCollum, a true-crime version of the story.
