I’m almost done with Murder in Music City and I’ve been thinking how interesting it is in regard to my project because it has absolutely nothing to do with civil rights.
This is how the system at the time “worked.” The baseline of corruption and venality. If it was this easy to deny justice to a pretty, well-loved in her community, blonde white girl, how exponentially easier does it become to deny justice to everyone else?
But I do also think it’s fascinating just in the way that the society had a hard time recognizing and acknowledging women as evil. That clearly comes across in my research, too.
Anyway, I’m enjoying the fuck out of it.
