Inhaltsangabe: What actually occurred beginning October 1, 1919, in Phillips County, Arkansas, has been the subject of debate; there is no monument to the victims of the deadly conflict between black sharecroppers and white plantation owners, because the facts have never been sorted out. Over the course of five weeks, five whites, including a soldier, died; black

Umschlagtext: In late September 1919, black sharecroppers met to protest unfair settlements for their cotton crops from white plantation owners. Local law enforcement broke up the union's meeting, and the next day a thousand white men from the Delta?and troops of the U.S. Army itself?converged on Phillips County, Arkansas, to "put down" the black sharecroppers' "insurrection." In riveting, novelistic prose, writer and Delta native Grif Stockley considers the evidence and tells the full story of this incident for the first time, concluding that black people were murdered in Elaine by white mobs and federal soldiers. Five white men died as a result of the conflict; contemporary estimates of African American deaths ranged from 20 to an even more horrifying 856. White officials jailed hundreds of black workers, torturing some of them. Twelve black men were charged with first-degree murder. Their legal battles lasted six years, but national and local silence has persisted much longer. Stockley takes on this silence and shows that it resulted from sustained official efforts to convince the public that only blacks who had resisted lawful authority were killed. He shows too that it is part of a larger silence in which the fear and terror that were the daily staples of the African American experience have been summed up all too easily in the term "Jim Crow" in a failure to fully confront the anguish of the period.

Buchbeschreibung Fayetteville, University of Arkansas Press, 2001. BRAND NEW. Virgin copy, not yet traded. Royal 8vo. Pp. xxxii, 264. With illustrated title page, halftone illustrations, map; chronology of events, notes, index. Hardcover, red cloth, spine lettered in black, with dust-jacket. ~ First edition. In late September 1919, black sharecroppers met to protest unfair settlements for their cotton crops from white plantation owners. Local law enforcement broke up the union's meeting, and the next day a thousand white men from the Delta, and troops of the U.S. Army, hit. This book tells the full story of this incident for the first time. It concludes that black people were murdered in Elaine by white mobs and federal soldiers, and hundreds were jailed, some tortured. "Meticulously researched and compellingly argued, this is the definitive history of the Elaine massacre, the bloodiest race war of the Red Summer of 1919. Deeply enriches our understanding not only of America's violently racist past, but also of the challenges which that history poses for the future.". Artikel-Nr. 0448
