Alone Against the Klan; One Man's Fight for Justice (Paperback)
In 1937, Alabama was racially divided. The legal system at this time, aided by the Ku Klux Klan, enforced strict segregation. The last unlawful lynching of a black man by the Klan occurred in rural Southeast Alabama. The young man sought protection from his employer, who sheltered him with the family in his home. After thirty-six hours of a continuous siege by the Klan, the accused was handed over to the county sheriff for trial.
This is the true story as told by members of the Klan involved in the murder. A single White man stood alone against the fury of the Klan to do what was right. Not until others would stand like him for justice was segregation ended.
