Description

He was a Vietnam veteran, politically and socially active with a successful career in airline aviation. To outsiders, Captain Timothy McDonald would seem like the last person to fall in love with a convicted felon. But upon meeting Teresa Deion Harris, McDonald soon earned a unique distinction, becoming the first man to marry an imprisoned woman serving life without parole. Abused, oppressed, and trapped in a cycle of poverty in the rural South, Harris had lived a life that was the opposite of McDonald's. But it wasn't long before McDonald recognized the resemblance between her trial and a contemporary witch-hunt-complete with accusations of satanic activities and devil worship. Penned by Captain McDonald himself, The Lynching of Teresa Deion Harris is the story of how this unlikely couple met and fell in love-and the many ways Harris has been failed by society, her local community, and the American criminal justice system. In addition to setting the record straight about their romance and eleven-year marriage, this eye-opening book reveals why McDonald has remained Harris's biggest supporter to this day, examines the natures of modern-day lynch mobs, and discusses the problem of mass incarceration in the American South.show more
