Paula R. Bradshaw, a lifelong resident of Mississippi, has completed her book “A Second Lynching: My Truth”: a deeply personal memoir of racism in the United States.

Paula shares, “My story is based on true facts, chronicling the violations of civil rights which have been ongoing in my family since the 1700’s.
In the mid 1700’s, my Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandmother, was stolen by Englishmen from a country in Africa called Cameroon in the northwestern province near the Nigerian border. She was a member of the Tikar Tribe.
1928, my Great-Great Uncle Emanuel McCollum, was dragged from his home in front of his wife and children by the Ku Klux Klan and taken to Richburg Hill, Mississippi and lynched. Constant civil rights violations still continue.
I am the seventh generation in the bloodline, and the second born grandchild of Mary Leggett Watts, who felt it necessary to chronicle the events of the first lynching to help you better understand ‘A Second Lynching’.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Paula R. Bradshaw’s book is a detailed and disturbing history of institutionalized racism as experienced by generations of one family in America.
