He kicked open the door. Bee screamed and sat up in bed. Cancy let his eyes roam over her gleaming mulatto skin and she quickly covered herself. She didn’t like the ugly look in his eyes. Cancy Dodd was a backwoods farmer just appointed marshal of Carvell City, a Southern town seething with racial unrest. Cancy had two qualifications for the job – a vicious temper and a fierce hatred of Negroes. Armed with his new power, Cancy took up with Julie, a scheming honkeytonk girl, and started selling bootleg liquor to Negroes. Decent people protested and the Salute ran a scathing editorial. In a fury of revenge Cancy launched a reign of terror against Negroes and liberal whites that was to lead to a holocaust of violence and tragedy.
