The Lynching Waltz
CHOSEN BY THE SMITHSONIAN FOR INCLUSION IN ITS LIBRARY COLLECTION FOR THE NATIONAL AFRICAN-AMERICAN MUSEUM.
Inspired by an actual racist incident of the author’s youth, this is a remarkable story of how the good people of tiny Glencoe, Illinois, blunted a racist assault against its black children. Because all participants are gone and because what precisely occurred is unknown, the book has become a work of historical fiction.
