Patrick Phillips’s work of historical nonfiction, Blood at the Root, is a sweeping American tale that spans the Cherokee removals of the 1830s, the Reconstruction, the crushing injustice of Forsyth, Georgia’s racial cleansing, and uncovers a history of racial terrorism that continues to shape America in the 21st century. Grace and Justice on Death Row: A Race Against Time to Free an Innocent Man tells the story of Alfred Dewayne Brown, who spent over twelve years in prison for a high-profile crime he did not commit, as told by his lawyer, Brian Stolarz. Beth Macy’s Truevine: Two Brothers, A Kidnapping and A Mother’s Quest: A True Story of the Jim Crow South recounts the true story of two African-American brothers who were kidnapped and displayed as circus freaks, and whose mother endured a 28-year struggle to get them back.
