Tennessee's New Abolitionists

Tennessee's New Abolitionists | University of Tennessee Press | edited by Amy L. Sayward and Margaret Vandiver

Just got the advance copies of this new book. Some words:

“The meaning of the admonition—four words most often forgotten, ignored or intentionally violated–seems so simple: ‘Thou shall not kill.’ Here nineteen essayists remind us that there have been those among us who understood the meaning—and who sought to give Life to The Law.”
—John Seigenthaler

“One fine day when the death penalty is abolished in Tennessee, we’ll want to know how it happened. This book, edited by my good friends Amy Sayward and Margaret Vandiver, will tell the story—in riveting detail.” —Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking
