Here’s my answer: I edited a monumental history of Georgia, and there was only a paragraph devoted to the nightriding and ethnic cleansing in Forsyth County, Georgia in 1912 – site of the largest Civil Rights march in American History 75 years later led by Hosea Williams. This is also the county made famous by Oprah and a landmark Supreme Court case. I wanted to tell a story that bridged the generations over the past centure… unto the third and fourth generation, as the Bible so ominously puts it.
