BeschreibungLong George Alley is written in twenty-two points of view. Set in Natchez, Mississippi, during the Summer of 1965, it covers two days in the lives of local blacks, whites, and the idealistic young civil rights workers who've come to town to organize black voters and integrate public facilities. But racial tension and Ku Klux Klan violence are running high. And many local blacks--impoverished and apathetic--are resigned to the traditional Jim Crow system of the old South. One goal of the civil rights workers is a march on Duncan Park, an oasis of lush green lawns, a swimming pool and golf course. Where Whites relax and Blacks are allowed to drive through. During the march on Duncan Park, blacks and whites alike are compelled to search their souls and stand up for what they believe in. Long George Alley is a strikingly evocative statement about the glory, hate, and pain which the racial issue arouses, and which still tear at the fabric of America today. The spectrum of reactions explored in this book will not fail to awaken a response.
