The Color Of The Third Degree
Racism, Police Torture, And Civil Rights In The American South, 1930-1955
de Silvan Niedermeier
Sobre o livro
Uncovers the still-hidden history of police torture in the Jim Crow South. Based on a wide array of previously neglected archival sources, Silvan Niedermeier argues that as public lynching decreased, less visible practices of racial subjugation and repression became central to southern white supremacy.
