The story is based on Dorsey’s father, Charles Patrick, a civil rights leader from Alabama whose case against a white police officer propelled his fight for social justice in the fifties.

WITS Writer Deborah Frontiera’s entry, Living on Sisu, is a finalist in the 2009 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards contest and will receive recognition November 6 at the Arizona Authors Association banquet.
