"The early 20th century: an era when lynchings were commonplace throughout the American South. To most of the press, this epidemic of racial murder wasn't even news. But a few courageous reporters from the North risked their lives to expose these atrocities. They were light-skinned African-American men who could 'pass' for white. They called this dangerous assignment 'going incognegro.' Zane Pinchback, a reporter for the New York-based New Holland Herald, barely escapes with his life after his latest 'incognegro' story goes bad. But when he returns to the sanctuary of Harlem, he's sent on a new story--the arrest of his own brother, charged with the brutal murder of a white woman in Mississippi"--From publisher description
