Description:

Throughout her life and career, Joyce King has witnessed and dealt with many types of bias and stereotypes. “Hate Crime: The Story of a Dragging in Jasper, Texas” (Random House and Anchor) emerged from her broadcast coverage of the trials of all three defendants in the 1998 murder of James Byrd Jr. in East Texas. “Exonerated” (River Grove Books) arose from her service on the Innocence Project of Texas and her relationship with James Woodard. King relates her experiences as a journalist, as a black woman, and as a native Texan.
