William Walker was an African American man who was sold again and again to different slave owners and had to flee to Canada to realise his dreams of freedom. But little did he know that his dreams were soon to be shattered and that too ironically after his emancipation. His search for job took him to the dreaded South and on an unfateful day his white neighbour's wife came running to his house to seek shelter from her abusive husband. What followed then was nothing less than a Hollywood film script! A must read for everyone who is interested in how Southern discriminatory laws buried African Americans behind prison walls to muffle their voices and protests... Thomas S. Gaines - nothing is known about this author but it is widely conjectured it is an assumed identity to expose the despicable state of Jackson State prison and bring back William Walker's tragic story from the oblivion.
