Cox Newspapers' Elliot Jaspin, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and narrator Don Leslie form the perfect news team. Leslie authoritatively voices Jaspin's courageous reporting of America's hidden racial cleansings. He takes the listener through an examination of largely unreported incidents in which blacks were driven from communities in the post-Civil War period. Jaspin documents such cleansings, including the well-known Forsyth County, Georgia, event, well into the twentieth century, in both the North and the South. As Leslie describes the spread of fear and terror, the listener can well imagine the horror. Most telling is Jaspin's evidence that these events and the cover-ups surrounding them continue to impact the nation today. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
