Reviews
Books such as Dixie's Italians reinforce my love and respect for my paternal and maternal grandparents, who emigrated migrated from my ancestral home of Cefalu, Sicily. They left Sicily hoping to give their families a better way of life in a strange land, whose people then committed vile acts against them and others from Sicily. Jessica Jackson remembers five of them, lynched in 1899 Tallulah, Louisiana, and two who were lynched in 1901 in Mississippi.--Sal Serio, curator of the American Italian Research Library
