The Life and Death of Idealistic Civil Rights Worker Is Told in New Non-fiction, A Cry in the Night
The Deep South in the 1960s is no place for the young and innocent. A Civil Rights worker learns that hard truth in a tale of an idealistic life and violent death, A Cry in the Night.
Canton, MS – The life and violent death of a teenage Civil Rights worker is told in all its chilling horror in the new non-fiction, A Cry in the Night: The City of Lights’ Dark Side. The book is published by Outskirts Press.
Canton, Miss., in the 1960s is a city steeped in violence, and saturated in hatred and murder. It is precisely the type of place where a young idealist might believe she could make a mark on the world. A Cry in the Night is based on the life and death of innocence in the South. The non-fiction tells the story of one such dreamer – an 18-year-old Civil Rights worker who meets a grizzly fate in pursuit of justice for all.
