Hellhound: Dedicated To My African American Cousins & To Mississippi Social Justice Advocates

Dedication From The Book

For the enormous contributions they have made – and are continuing to make for social justice and education, Hellhound is dedicated to The Mississippi Center for Justice (web link), and the Sunflower County Freedom Project (web link).

Also, to my African-American cousins at the George Family Facebook Group who diligently search for their roots that lead from slaves at Cotesworth, a Mississippi plantation once owned by supreme racist U.S. Senator James Zachariah George (my great-great-great-grandfather).

A key architect of Jim Crow segregation, George devised the poll tax and literacy test and had them included in the Mississippi Constitution of 1890 (still the supreme law of that state). As Chief Justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court, George played a key role in preventing Black citizens from voting.

I am profoundly distressed to see George Family members struggle to document their own family trees. This is in large part because slaves didn’t get birth certificates, and plantation records are mostly incomplete.

I believe they will succeed.

”In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage – to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.” — Alex Haley, author of Roots (web link).
