Have You Heard About The Slaughter?

What if the U.S. military shot to death and disappeared the bodies of more than one thousand Black soldiers at an Army camp in southwest Mississippi in the middle of World World II? I know, I know. But what if it really happened? Would you want to know about it? Would you just shrug and say "let sleeping dogs lie," "don't stir up stuff you can't do anything about," "that was then and this is now"? Or would you hover around the fire to hear the tale told?

I'll be listening to Blog Talk Radio on Sunday, July 1st, at 8:00 p.m. (CST) to hear Antoinette Harrell and her guest, author Carroll Case, talk about The Slaughter ~ An American Atrocity. What about you?

So, what did you think and what has followup been???

Thanks for the nudge, Z. Actually, I tried to contact a few people about it without getting any responses. I've held off on contacting the principle author because I've been told that repeated threats against him and his family have him too scared to speak to anybody. But I could at least post a couple of decent links. It's a truly horrific story and sounds true. :^/
