Blood Justice

The Lynching of Mack Charles Parker

Howard Smead

Based on previously unreleased FBI and Justice Department documents, extensive interviews with many of the surviving principals involved in the case, and a variety of newspaper accounts, Smead reconstructs the full story of the Parker lynching--one of the last lynchings in America--that occurred in 1959 in Poplarville, Mississippi.
