Patricia Bernstein tells a tale that is long overdue, and tells it extremely well. This story is riveting, tragic, and an altogether indispensable part of American history.
Personalizing this tragedy puts a face and a name on an historic and horrific event that must not be forgotten. An important piece of historical research, well written and powerful.
. . . Bernstein’s exceptionally well told account of the lynching and of the activists who exposed and denounced it ranks as one of the best accounts of a lynching ever published.
