Overview

This novel is based on a historically accurate account of the Wilmington, North Carolina, “race riot” of 1898, and is a passionate portrait of the betrayal of black culture in America, by an acclaimed African-American writer.

Praise

“Chesnutt was tremendously explicit in representing the violence and his own anger. Today it reads as one of the more enduring novels of the era.” —Richard Yarborough, UCLA
