Overview

What actually occurred beginning October 1, 1919, in Phillips County, Arkansas, has been the subject of debate; there is no monument to the victims of the deadly conflict between black sharecroppers and white plantation owners, because the facts have never been sorted out. Over the course of five weeks, five whites, including a soldier, died; blacks' deaths are estimated from 20 to 856. Stockley, a lawyer and mystery writer, believes that the US military took part in the massacres along with white locals, and wants the US and Arkansas governments at least to admit that something happened there.
