Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Cotton County, Georgia, 1930. In a house full of secrets, two babies - one light-skinned, the other dark - are born to Elma Jesup, a white sharecropper's daughter. Accused of her rape, field hand Genus Jackson is lynched and dragged behind a truck. In the aftermath, the farm's inhabitants are forced to contend with their complicity in a series of events that left a man dead and a family irrevocably fractured. Tackling themes of racialized violence, social division, and financial crisis, this is a startlingly timely, emotionally resonant, and magnificent tour de force.
