Author Grif Stockley talked about a little known, but devastating story in Jim Crow era Arkansas. The author looked at the evidence from this event such as letters, interviews, newspaper and trial transcripts that revealed the tale of the slaughter of at least 20 African-American sharecroppers who had dared to meet and then protest unfair settlements for their cotton crops from white plantation owners.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Little Rock, Arkansas, on March 5-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
