Summary
A year before, Tom Landrum, a young, unassuming member of a family with deep Mississippi roots, joined the Klan to become an FBI informant. He penetrated the White Knights? secret circles, recording almost daily journal entries. He risked his life, and the safety of his young family, to chronicle extensively the clandestine activities of the Klan. Veteran journalist Curtis Wilkie draws on his exclusive access to Landrum?s journals to re-create these events?the conversations, the incendiary nighttime meetings, the plans leading up to Dahmer?s murder and its erratic execution?culminating in the conviction and imprisonment of many of those responsible for Dahmer?s death. -- plumbs the nature and harrowing consequences of institutional racism, and brings fresh light to this chapter in the history of civil rights in the South?one with urgent implications for today
