On November 23, 1887, white vigilantes gunned down unarmed black

laborers and their families during a spree lasting more than two hours.

The violence erupted due to strikes on Louisiana sugar cane plantations. Fear, rumor and white supremacist ideals clashed with an unprecedented labor action to create an epic tragedy. The story has never been fully told until now. Correspondence, interviews and U.S. government records back up this telling of the story nobody wanted told.
