This paper presents a review of "Ghosts of Mississippi", by Maryanne Vollers; "Sons of Mississippi", by Paul Hendrickson; "The White House Staff", by Bradley H. Patterson; and "The American Presidency", by Sidney M. Milkis and Michael Nelson. The first two books listed are about civil rights in the South and the second two are about the American presidency.
From the Paper:"Maryanne Vollers introduces her text by stating that Byron De La Beckwith was not an ordinary prisoner and he was not treated like one. The subject of Vollers' book is the murder of civil rights activist of Medgar Evers by Byron De La Beck and the determined efforts of Myrlie Evers to bring Beck to justice -- an effort that took quite literally decades despite the fact that it was well known that Beck was Evers' killer."
