Friends Journal reviews Red Summer

Friends Journal, the national magazine for the Religious Society of Friends, known as the Quakers, reviewed Red Summer in the April 2012 issue. Reviewer Donna Bowen McDaniel writes: “McWhirter’s well-written and thoroughly researched work tells truths about the death or wounding of hundreds of African Americans and millions of dollars in damage to their property, another phenomenon on which history texts are silent. If we are to speak truth to power, McWhirter gives us vital truths to confront.”
