Publisher's Summary

Widely hailed for its historical resonance, Daniel Black's The Sacred Place is a powerful examination of racial tensions in 1955 Mississippi. Visiting from Chicago, 14-year-old Clement is unfamiliar with the social customs of the tiny town of Money. Striding into a general store, he offends the white store clerk by not placing his nickel in her hand. This seemingly innocuous act leads to a horrific murder and a conflict drawn along racial lines.

Very Interesting

Even though this story took place in the 50's it's very sad to know that things are slightly different but very much still the same today 😑.
