Overview

"A a monumental social history...Through a combinaton of oral history and interpretive narrative, Greene has created a work of great drama, a chorus of voices that is both disturbing and inspiring."
THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE
Somehow, the sweeping changes of the civil rights movement had bypassed rural McIntosh County, Georgia. In the 1970s, the white sheriff there still wielded all power; he controlled everyone and everything.

PRAYING FOR SHEETROCK is about that one man, his victory and his utlimate fall from grace.
