Smoke Signals From Samarcand (eBook)
The 1931 Reform School Fire And Its Aftermath
Sobre o livro
In 1931 sixteen poor, white girls - all teenaged inmates at Samarcand Manor - were accused of burning down two campus buildings in protest against living conditions. Barbara Bennett not only offers a dramatic retelling of this historic case, but also reveals a case study of the misguided social-engineering schemes that churned through Southern states during this time.
