In this memoir, Ollies brother and author W.C. Chandler narrates Ollies short life story that includes racial discrimination, a miscarriage of justice, and his untimely death. Ollie was one of the fourteen children of John and Leatha Chandler who lived in the rural community of Clyattville, Georgia. Life was not easy for a black family living in the south. And for Ollie, life was even more difficult. Mentally challenged, he wasnt able to finish school. But at age seventeen, Ollie was arrested for a murder he said he didnt commit. His Blood Cries Out for Justice tells the rest of Ollies story-from his time in jail to his trial by an all-white jury and his subsequent death.A moving tribute, His Blood Cries Out for Justice pays homage to this young life that was cut short. It reckons with history while also celebrating one familys deep love and that familys attempt to make sense of a tragedy.
