THE THIRTEENTH TURN
The story of a rope, a symbol, and rough justice in America.
The hangman’s knot is a simple thing to tie, just a rope carefully coiled around itself up to thirteen times. But in those thirteen turns lie a powerful symbol, one that is all too deeply connected to America’s past—and present.
The last man to be hanged in the United States was Billy Bailey, who was executed in Delaware in 1996 for committing a double murder. Even today, hanging is still legal, in certain situations, in New Hampshire and Washington. And the noose remains a potent cultural symbol. An incident in Jena, Louisiana, in 2006, in which nooses were used to menace black students, made national news. Yet little has changed: according to author Jack Shuler, there have been nearly 100 “noose incidents” just in the last two years.
AUTHOR - JACK SHULER
Jack Shuler is assistant professor of English at Denison University. Shuler's book Calling Out Liberty: The Stono Slave Rebellion and the Universal Struggle for Human Rights (Mississippi University Press, 2009) explores the development of human rights in early America repositioning the often-assumed sources of these important and often challenged ideals.Shuler's second book, Blood and Bone: Truth and Reconciliation in a Southern Town (University of South Carolina Press, February 2012), examines the 1968 Orangeburg Massacre, the killing of three black students at a historically black college in Orangeburg, South Carolina, Shuler's hometown. Part memoir, part history, the book explores how the community has and has not changed since 1968 in an effort to understand the challenges of racial reconciliation
A perfect way to celebrate Halloween.
October 30 & 31, 2014
Six people have come in secret on Halloween to play a murder mystery game at a rustic island cottage. Games are fun...until someone dies. The guests appear set for a weekend of fun until ghosts from the past begin to haunt the proceedings and guests begin to die. Secret passageways, incriminating letters, hidden compartments, dead bodies and a twenty-five year old unsolved mystery twist brings this play to an unexpected, terrifying conclusion.
