1. Lion’s Blood 

By Steven Barnes

      1. Without Sanctuary

    Lynching Photography In America

    by James Allen

This is a shockingly unbelievable collection of photographs of  barbarians and their victims.  The inhumane acts of  crimes committed against melaninated people should be used by proponents for reparations at the human rights tribune.  A visual documentation of  why they cry racism too much. White supremacy in it's true nature revealed.

2. Somebody To Catch My Drift

By Jacqueline Powell
