Writers LIVE: Victoria Christopher Murray, Stand Your Ground

A black teenage boy is dead. A white man kiled him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder? Using the Trayvon Martin case as the foundation for her story, Victoria Christopher Murray weaves a tale about the two women who are dealing with the tragedy: Janice Johnson, the mother of the victim, and Meredith Spencer, the wife of the accused.

Victoria Christopher Murray is the Essence bestselling author of more than 20 novels, including The Ex Files; Lady Jasmine; and The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil. She is a three-time NAACP Image Award Nominee for Outstanding Fiction.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a generous grant from PNC Bank.
