A SAGA OF SHAME is a 20-page tabloid dealing with racial discrimination and the death penalty in the U.S. in its current and historical concerts. A lot of the information has been presented before in other publications and PLN has reported some of the statistics in previous issues. Saga of Shame brings all the information together in one place. It also has an excellent overview of the U.S. Supreme Court's long history of tolerating racial discrimination as well as the racism in the application of the death penalty. This publication has a lot of food for thought not just for death penalty abolitionists but also for the wider anti-racist struggle. Highly recommended.
