A MASSACRE IN MEMPHIS: The Race Riot That Shook the Nation One Year After the Civil War
In May of 1866, the city of Memphis, Tennessee, erupts in a spasm of racial violence. Ash closely tracks the course of the riot, creating a harrowing case study of mob violence in which we see omens of pernicious developments--the Ku Klux Klan, lynching, Jim Crow--still to come.
