A CRIME ON THE BAYOU

A Crime on the Bayou tells the story of a lasting bond formed between an unjustly arrested Black man, Gary Duncan and Richard Sobol, his young Jewish attorney. In 1966, 19-year old Duncan faces the white supremacist court system in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, for daring to touch a white boy’s arm. Standing united, the pair takes Duncan’s case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to fight for the rights of all Americans to a fair trial.

Since he was a teenager, Eddie has been deeply involved in social justice work. From the trenches to the coasts and everywhere in between, Eddie fights for a progressive movement that works towards a more inclusive, diverse America. Despite having many obstacles in his way, nothing has deterred Eddie from continuing to fight for the migrant community!  As a DACA recipient and someone who has immersed himself in the Jewish tradition, Eddie finds his passion for justice through his latent Jewish values of continuous education and repairing the world, as well as his personal struggles with systemic oppression.
