Mississippi Burning
Topseller
18,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Based on one of the most notorious race-related murder cases in US history, Alan Parker's (The Commitments), multi-award winning Mississippi Burning gets its first ever UK Blu-ray release courtesy of Second Sight. This powerful film stars Hollywood heavyweights Gene Hackman (The French Connection), Willem Dafoe (Platoon) and Frances McDormand (Fargo), and arrives in a newly restored edition with a slew of brand new special features on 14 September 2015. When three civil rights activists go missing deep in Ku Klux Klan territory, the FBI are called in to investigate. Agents Ward (Dafoe) and Anderson (Hackman) are poles apart in their approach, one methodical and by-the-book, the other more cynical with age and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Facing an uncooperative local police force and a community too afraid to talk, their investigation sparks repercussions as they edge even closer to the truth.

White Noise
35,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In White Noise Mark Peterson examines the rhetoric of the White House on immigration and Muslim bans, and how this echoes and intersects with nationalism, Western chauvinism, white supremacy, neo-Nazis, and all those calling for an ethnostate in America. Peterson began his project as a means to understand the divisive mood of the country following the 2016 presidential election. His often confronting subjects include anti-Muslim rallies in New York; families on Confederate Memorial Day in the South; white nationalists protesting in Charlottesville, preceding the murder of Heather Heyer; leaders of the Ku Klux Klan in their homes; burning swastikas. The result is a vital and unsettling portrait of the normalization of this reality in the United States; in Claudia Rankine's words: "What our government won't acknowledge Mark Peterson has. His images focus on the terror that has taken advantage of our refusal to look it squarely in its face and acknowledge it as homegrown and thriving."

Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Grov...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Audie Award Winner, History, 2014 Pulitzer Prize, General Nonfiction, 2013 Arguably the most important American lawyer of the 20th century, Thurgood Marshall was on the verge of bringing the landmark suit Brown v. Board of Education before the U.S. Supreme Court when he became embroiled in an explosive and deadly case that threatened to change the course of the civil rights movement and cost him his life. In 1949, Florida's orange industry was booming, and citrus barons got rich on the backs of cheap Jim Crow labor. To maintain order and profits, they turned to Willis V. McCall, a violent sheriff who ruled Lake County with murderous resolve. When a white 17-year-old Groveland girl cried rape, McCall was fast on the trail of four young blacks who dared to envision a future for themselves beyond the citrus groves. By day's end, the Ku Klux Klan had rolled into town, burning the homes of blacks to the ground and chasing hundreds into the swamps, hell-bent on lynching the young men who came to be known as the "Groveland Boys". And so began the chain of events that would bring Thurgood Marshall, the man known as "Mr. Civil Rights", into the deadly fray. Associates thought it was suicidal for him to wade into the "Florida Terror" at a time when he was irreplaceable to the burgeoning civil rights movement, but the lawyer would not shrink from the fight - not after the Klan had murdered one of Marshall's NAACP associates involved with the case and Marshall had endured continual threats that he would be next. Drawing on a wealth of never-before-published material, including the FBI's unredacted Groveland case files, as well as unprecedented access to the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund files, King shines new light on this remarkable civil rights crusader, setting his rich and driving narrative against the heroic backdrop of a case that U.S. Supreme Court justice Robert Jackson decried as "one of the bes 1.

A gun moll with a knack for disappearing flees from Prohibition-era Harlem to Portland's Paragon Hotel.The year is 1921, and "Nobody" Alice James has just arrived in Oregon with a bullet wound, a lifetime's experience battling the New York Mafia, and fifty thousand dollars in illicit cash. She befriends Max, a black Pullman porter who reminds her achingly of home and who saves Alice by leading her to the Paragon Hotel. But her unlikely sanctuary turns out to be an all-black hotel in a Jim Crow city, and its lodgers seem unduly terrified of a white woman on the premises.As she meets the churlish Dr. Pendleton, the stately Mavereen, and the club chanteuse Blossom Fontaine, she understands their dread.

Beyond the Burning Cross
17,90 CHF *

Does our abhorrence of racism allow us to ban certain forms of speech? This is the simple yet subversive question that Edward J. Cleary posed to the U.S. Supreme Court when, in 1991, he defended a white student who had burned a cross on a black family's lawn in St. Paul, Minnesota, violating a local ordinance against hate crimes. As a progressive, Cleary detested everything his client stood for. But in this compelling argued book he describes how he overturned the St. Paul ordinance-and convinced the Court to rule that 'burning a cross is reprehensible. But St. Paul has sufficient means . . . to prevent such behavior without adding the First Amendment to the fire.' As Cleary retraces his path from St. Paul to the courtroom in Washington, he juxtaposes the stories of previous First Amendment cases with a personal account of the unlikely alliances (with both the A.C.L.U. and a group engaged in defending the Ku Klux Klan) and antagonisms that grew out of the case. Ultimately, he shows us why a law that bans expressions of racism is as dangerous as a law that bans protests against those expressions. In Beyond the Burning Cross, Leary has given us an unparalleled insider's report of a watershed event in constitutional history that is as absorbing as any thriller.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A beautiful woman is branded with a hot iron by masked men at midnight. Bands of citizen vigilantes are asked to hunt down and shoot union agitators in the lumber mills. Bootleggers hide moonshine stills deep in the old growth woods. An airplane dragging a burning cross crashes onto the fairgrounds during a KKK rally. Is this a Hollywood movie? No, this is Tillamook County, Oregon in the 1920s. What secrets does this seemingly tranquil stretch of coastal paradise hold? Many are surprised to learn that dark trends of fear and intolerance have swept through the area like the cyclical forest fires that have raged in the nearby mountains. And, like the forest fires, the causes are difficult to pinpoint, and the remedy and prevention even more elusive. Through close scrutiny of historical archives, period books and newspapers, personal interviews, and a rare trove of Tillamook Ku Klux Klan papers housed in the Special Collections Library at the University of Oregon, A Brief History of Fear and Intolerance in Tillamook County seeks to avert future fires by exposing the roots of hatred and racism as deeply and accurately as possible.

Historic Tales of Seneca County, New York
21,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Seneca County has a fascinating history. Early settlers courageously fought off wild animals from wolves to panthers to tame the land and keep the new settlements safe. The rise and fall of the mill industry led to the demise of ghost towns like the Kingdom. The jailhouse murder of John Walters in 1887 fostered improved conditions in the county jail. From the first home-run hitter in major-league baseball to the insidious activity of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s and the unfortunate burning of a traveling embalmed whale, author and historian Walter Gable shares many of the defining moments of Seneca County history.
