The story of ten extraordinary years, four groundbreaking cases, and one unconventional federal judge.

An ordinary "colored" janitor from Detroit, whose personal struggles reflected those of a nation first coming to terms with civil rights, Damon J. Keith became a controversial judge who used the law to advance social change, ultimately changing the country. Today, at 94, he is still on the bench; he is still the only federal judge ever to be sued by a sitting U.S. President, and his rulings continue to influence a nation still arguing about "which lives matter" almost 50 years later.

It may be the greatest story you never heard.
