Editorial Review from Product Description
One morning in 1998, America awoke to the story of a staggering hate crime. A man beaten and chained to the back of a pickup truck, dragged three miles until his body was torn to pieces...simply because he was black. The world press came and went, often stereotyping Jasper, Texas as a small town full of redneck haters. Two filmmakers, who had known each other since childhood, wanted to take a closer look. One filmmaker was white, one black. They had talked with each other for years about their belief that the races have trouble talking to one another, and they had an idea. Whitney Dow would film the whites of Jasper. Marco Williams would film the blacks.
