About this product
- DescriptionYou're holding in your hands a book of controversy, Racism and Diversity. Demons do battle with good but vengeance is mine said the Lord. It contains love and hate that is so powerful that it changed the life of its characters forever. Liza who was a little White girl and Lisa a little black girl was forbidden to play together because of the Racism and Diversity that dictated their way of life in their Southern community. In the midst of all the controversy that went on between their families, they created a friendship that would be a link to a forbidden love affair between Lisa's Brother Willie Jr. and Liza. Their interracial love affair would later prove deadly. Hamilton Sheppard the Mayor of Mobile Alabama and Klan member; was Liza's father and Boss of Willie Rae senior, who was a Christian and Lisa and Willie Jr. father. He was faced with a choice that his Christianity wouldn't allow him to make; his son was rebellious and on path of destruction, Willie Rae found himself having an unspoken bond, with the Mayor's wife Patricia Ann Sheppard, who was also a Christian and a decent White woman if there ever was one in the South. The black farm workers called Patricia Mrs. Patty; it was a name giving to her by the colored workers as a term of endearment. The colored workers were called the Sheppard's-men giving to them by Hamilton Sheppard and his brother Jud as a term of ownership; even though slavery was emancipated. Patricia was thing like her husband Hamilton, in fact she was an activist of sorts for the colored. This didn't sit too well with Hamilton. The hate he harbored for the colored and the Christian love that Patricia exerted tainted their marriage. And because she didn't share Hamilton views he was often violent towards her; he hated what she stood for so much that he wanted her dead. The day would come when blood of the incent would be spilt on the hanging tree, that they w call the blood tree.
