About "Crossing the Lines"

An idealistic white news reporter's family is caught in the crossfire of black and white as he covers the explosive events of the Civil Rights movement in the racially charged South of the late 1950s.
- Koorong

Family man Jack Hall wants nothing more than to be a respectable newspaper reporter, see a good baseball game now and again, love his wife, and watch his son grow up in their middle-class, white community. Then he finds himself on the fault line where black meets white in the American South of the late 1950s.

Still reeling from an explosive confrontation that put his family in jeopardy (detailed in Richard Doster's first book, Safe at Home), Jack takes a job with the Atlanta Constitution and moves his wife and son south. He's thrilled when he's introduced to legendary editor Ralph McGill, an outspoken opponent of segregation who promptly sends Jack to Montgomery to investigate reports of a bus boycott.

Once again, historic events sweep Jack and his idealistic son, Christ, into harm's way. Will this be the collision that destroys his family forever?
