Customer Reviews

“A gripping account of the cultural milieu of a racist environment. Cinematically engaging, harrowing, and poignant . . .”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“This highly readable book is likely to remain the final account of the Till murder and trial and its impact in the United States and abroad. It will appeal to anyone interested in African American history and the judicial process.”
