About the Book

The Real Verdict
My Quest For The Freedom I Never Had


A child doesn’t choose her lot in life; but, ultimately, she is the artisan of her destiny. First-time author Nitra Gipson poignantly illustrates this perspective in her captivating autobiography, chronicling her life from early childhood to the present. Growing up in a family wracked with secrets, young Nitra constantly nurtured her dream to strive and achieve academic success. Her ambition was cultivated by her mother and uncles, who recognized her budding potential. Although she recognized her intrinsic worth, Nitra was constantly demoralized by people in her family and acquaintance circles. Through it all, she lived in fear, harboring a terrible secret of her own: From the ages of three to eleven, she endured physical abuse, perpetrated by a family member. Despite her desperate attempts to reveal the truth, her outcries were ignored. Under threats and intimidation, the little girl harbored the secret for years, until she faced her reality, found her voice, and put an end to the horror. Notwithstanding that triumph, Nitra’s quest for personal freedom was far from over. At the age of thirteen, she witnessed her uncle’s high profile murder trial and execution. Then, five years later, she faced one of America’s most formidable corporate behemoths in the courtroom, striving to prove her innocence of a crime that she did not commit. Who would ever believe that an unassuming girl from Texas could prevail against such a foe?

Read Nitra’s story of struggle, heartache, and attainment of justice. Expect the unexpected. Be inspired.


About the Author

Coming from modest beginnings on the southwest side of Houston, Texas, Nitra Gipson was raised in a dysfunctional family. The repercussions of psychological, emotional, and physical abuse, sustained during her childhood, nearly shattered her life. Living her private pain and her uncle’s tragic public death by execution galvanized her interest in the law and the workings of the legal system. In December, 2008, she graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. In the interim, she sued one of the nation’s largest corporate entities after being falsely accused of committing a felony while on its premises. A sizeable award ensued from the verdict in her favor. Nitra defines her success and personal accomplishments by her relationships with loved ones and supporters, most notably her mother, siblings, and fiancé, with whom she envisions a future filled with hope. This is her first book.
