BLACK DEATH IN DIXIE, USA
Film showing and book readings on the death penalty by Irish author and film maker, Peadar King
The modern day death penalty has become state sponsored lynching.
- from What in the World?, a book by Peadar King
Peadar King, journalist and producer of the Irish TV series, What in the World? , will show his film on the death penalty in the United States, Black Death in Dixie, USA, and will read selections about the death penalty from his book, What in the World? Political Travels in Africa, Asia and the Americas.
This remarkable travelogue, inquiry, and illuminating analysis provides a sympathetic and searching look at a world we have helped create but do not see - a world of painful and needless suffering, courageous resistance, and even inspiration and hope.
