Hanging Bridge

Racial Violence and America's Civil Rights Century

Jason Morgan Ward

  • More than a metaphor, this book is based on an actual site, the "hanging bridge" — though abandoned — which still spans the Chickasawhay River
  • Examines violence, race, and politics in the deepest recesses of the South
  • Reflects on racial violence in the 20th century as anchored to a particular location and the narratives that haunt it
