Alice and Freda Forever PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alice and Freda Forever free pdf Freda adjusted to this fate with an ease that stunned a heartbroken Alice. Her desperation grew with each unanswered letter-and her father's razor soon went missing. On January 25, Alice publicly slashed her ex-fiancee's throat. Her same-sex love was deemed insane by her father that very night, and medical experts agreed. This was a dangerous and incurable perversion. As the courtroom was expanded to accommodate national interest, Alice spent months in jail - including the night that three of her fellow prisoners were lynched (an event which captured the attention of journalist and civil rights activist Ida B. Wells). After a jury of "the finest men in Memphis" declared Alice insane, she was remanded to an asylum, where she died under mysterious circumstances just a few years later. Alice and Freda Forever recounts this tragic, real-life love story with over 100 illustrated love letters, maps, artifacts, historical documents, newspaper articles, courtroom proceedings, and intimate, domestic scenes - painting a vivid picture of a sadly familiar world.
