Product Description

One of the most significant historical novels in American literature, this book is based on the Wilmington, North Carolina Massacre of 1898. Called a "race riot" by the inflammatory Southern press and engineered by white Democrats who had seen their political control slip into the hands of Republicans, many of whom were black, it was in fact a coup that restored power to the Democrats by subverting the principles of free democratic election. Some of Charles Chesnutt's relatives lived through the violence, and their accounts inspired this powerful and passionate novel.
