At the National Council of Churches, Robert Spike had organized American churches to support the passage of both the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, to march in Selma and to organize in Mississippi.

In the midst of what he described as "the dirtiest fight of my life" struggling to save a federal Mississippi education program,he was viciously murdered in Columbus, Ohio. The murder was never solved. This book is a memoir by Spike's son Paul Spike, concerning his life in the 1960s and the ways in which his father's brutal murder reshaped his life.
