Join us as Joseph Ingle signs his historical and emotional account of inequality on death row.

About the book:
Working with death-row inmates in the killing ground of the South, Rev. Ingle lost over 20 people to the executioner in twelve years. In 1991 he made his way to Harvard University on a Merrill Fellowship where he began a twenty-year process of reading, writing; and he continued to work with the condemned. He began to comprehend that the United States, foremost advocate of democratic government and a champion of human rights throughout the world, was built on contradictions. And he began to ask whether, in fact, we have to consider the government of our country in terms of tyranny. As a pastor to Death Row inmates across the South and as a powerful advocate to prison wardens, lawyers, judges, and legislators, Joseph Ingle has come to some shocking conclusions about the United States, champion of human rights throughout the world. He began to recognize another aspect to US history: systematic oppression imposed by the very people who founded the country. The book is part personal experience, part history: the history of systematic destruction of minorities in America, from colonial days to now, by physical slaugh-ter and by legal and judicial means.

About the author:
Joseph B. Ingle began visiting prison inmates while studying at Union Seminary and living in East Harlem. A native of North Carolina, he returned to the South, to Tennessee, as a United Church of Christ minister. He has been working with prisoners, especially the condemned, since 1974. He has previously written Last Rights: 13 Fatal Encoun-ters with the State's Justice and The Inferno: A Southern Morality Tale. He is a graduate of St. Andrews College and received a Merrill Fellowship to Harvard in 1991.
