Description

"A brilliant study of the Mississippi white power structure during the Jim Crow era and the struggles of black people to achieve dignity and self-determination in spite of it...McMillen in effect draws a picture of the hangman's noose that was Mississippi society around the turn of the century, and in the course of the book that noose seems to tighten and choke all efforts in the direction of humanity and decency before our very eyes."
