Jackson, MS: Town Square Books, 1999. Paperback. Scarce. "This book will require Mississippi history to be rewritten! Documents never before released to the public show how the Sovereignty Commission tried to have college presidents and professors dismissed from their positions, taxpayers' money was used to have people spied upon, discredited and ostracized by their family and friends, and the Commission encouraged law enforcement agencies to arrest student volunteers, and civil rights workers, while knowing that some law enforcement personnel were members of the Klu Klux Klan. The Sovereignty Commission also funded the Citizens Councils' forums operated by men dedicated to using economic pressure to eliminate anyone, black or white, opposed to segregation" (rear cover). Includes reprints of incriminating documents of the Sovereignty Commission. Addresses lynching in Mississippi. A powerful and frightening book that unfortunately, remains very relevant in our present society. Illustrated red paper wrappers with black title to spine and white title to front cover.
