"A a monumental social history...Through a combinaton of oral history and interpretive narrative, Greene has created a work of great drama, a chorus of voices that is both disturbing and inspiring." THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE Somehow, the sweeping changes of the civil rights movement had bypassed rural McIntosh County, Georgia. In the 1970s, the white sheriff there still wielded all power; he controlled everyone and everything. It took one uneducated, unemployed black man with a passion for justice to take him on and win, changing life in McIntosh County forever. PRAYING FOR SHEETROCK is about that one man, his victory and his utlimate fall from grace.Greene, Melissa Fay is the author of 'Praying for Sheetrock A Work of Nonfiction', published 1992 under ISBN 9780449907535 and ISBN 0449907538.
