About the Book
Bitter Harvest: Richmond Flowers and the Civil Rights Revolution is not only the life story of Alabama Attorney General Richmond Flowers (1918-2007), but also a window into the America's tumultuous civil rights era. Flowers's story is part of a wider tale of reactionary hatred and violence during the civil rights era, a time when much of Alabama's leadership utterly failed the state by tacitly encouraging lawlessness and brutality. Bitter Harvest is a welcome addition to public and college library biography shelves, highly recommended.
