A red-and-white Impala full of angry Klansmen prowled the streets of Selma, Alabama, looking for trouble on the night of the 1965 voting rights march. They found it at a red light where they spotted a white woman and a black man in a car waiting to cross the Pettus Bridge. The only white woman honored at the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, Viola Liuzzo remains an enigma more than thirty years after her murder. This full-length biography follows Liuzzo through her childhood in the South and adult life in Michigan to the 1965 voting rights march in Selma, Alabama, where she died in a Klan ambush. Written by Mary Stanton, 250 pages.
