What’s This Book All About?

You’re looking at a book that peels back the layers of racial tension in early 20th-century North Carolina.
It’s about Maggie Ross, Union County’s wealthiest woman, and her surprising decision to leave her estate to Bob Ross, a black man raised in her household, and his daughter Mittie Bell Houston. When Maggie’s will surfaced after her death in 1920, it rocked the foundations of Jim Crow society by entrusting an African American family with substantial wealth.

The Courtroom Drama That Ensued

Over one hundred relatives rallied to contest Maggie’s will, alleging her kindness toward black heirs was evidence of insanity. What followed was a courtroom showdown that not only challenged societal norms but also hinted at a shift towards equity.
