An A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity eye opening read When I moved to this area of the country I had no idea it was awash with such violent racial hatred Granted it s the South and the South does have shall I say a less than admirable history regarding race relations but this is something different Different because much of this history has been hidden or at best has been a footnote in local history until recently Within the last decade there has been a lot of research into this particular history This book is a valuable compendium to a widening vital discussion of local history I m originally from Springfield MO and I must admit I only read the Springfield chapters though they comprise a good chunk of the book I had not heard about the 1906 triple lynching on the suare until my 10th high school reunion in 1987 For a time I considered writing some fiction inspired by that horrificvent and researched it to some Celebrity Bachelor extent But I never found any source that covered the lynching soxtensively with vivid detail I believe the author may have benefited from a 1970 masters thesis from a college student here as well as an archive of historical papers left to the local university by one of their best scholars Whatever the case Harper has done amazing research on this topicShe points out the lynching was in some ways like a classic Southern attack the accusation against two Black men of assault against a white woman they were innocent But largely on account of party politics at the time a man who participated in the mob action was prosecuted although unsuccessfully That was not like a classic Southern lynching That For Better and Worse event left behind grand jury transcripts which rendered thevent through Cassidys Kids (Maitland Maternity, eyewitness testimony that is very detailed I admit I should have read the whole book but what I read is really well done Highly recommended I saw this book on the shelves of the gift shop at the George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond Missouri but didn t buy it because I hadn t heard of it and I wanted to see if it was well reviews and worthwhile Also because I m an idiot who was afraid to part with a few bucks to take home a book that covers a topic I ve been curious about for many of my 60 years I had travelled to southwest Missouri for annual vacations since before my age hit double digits and the absence of POC grew glaring as I agedI was surprised to see that it was not currently in stock when I tracked down the book on I was surprised to see it only has 9 reviews on and 19 ratings on Goodreads At a time when books about race and history in America are jumping off the shelves still does not have this in stock today and few people seem to have notices itsxistenceThe book is well written timely and though Drawing on court records newspaper accounts penitentiary records letters and diaries White Man’s Heaven is a thorough investigation into the lynching and Rescuing the Texans Heart expulsion of African Americans in the Missouri and Arkansas Ozarks in the late nineteenth andarly twentieth centuries Kimberly Harper xplores.
S have not been so anxious to deport undocumented Latinos from regions of the South where industrial agriculture is dominant and depends on vast numbers of inexpensive laborers This is a fine addition to American history and African American studies Harper s book joins recent work on lynching by prominent African American scholars Highly recommended This book is an xcellent history of this Her Cowboy Hero (Refuge Ranch era of racist violence in the Ozarks and ties together a series ofvents in Pierce City Joplin and Springfield Mo and Harrison Ar It seems well researched and is mostly uite detailed in its attempts to create a full timeline and picture of Un hros pour Rayne (Delta Force Heroes t. 1) each city svent including a sense of race relations long before Mine to Take (Nine Circles, eachvent and a sense of the long term repercussions The author also attempts to tie these individual His L.A.
