5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant recounting of American tragedy and redemption., October 24, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Ghosts of Mississippi: The Murder of Medgar Evers, the Trials of Byron De La Beckwith, and the Haunting of the New South (Paperback)
In the literature of the civil rights movement, Ghosts of Mississippi, stands out like a jewel! Maryanne Vollers brings vast insight and a fine writer's eye to and agonizing and shameful event in American histoy--the murder of civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the three trials it took to convict his killer. There is great sadness in this story but also the hard glint of hope, as Vollers chronicles the love and hope that a few dedicated inviduals--black and white--carried in their hearts in the long struggle to see that justice was done, for the family and friends of Medgar Evers, and for all Americans. Kudos to Ms. Vollers!
