Whitewash: The Clarence Brandley Story

Whitewash: The Clarence Brandley Story In 1940 a black farmer named Dan Brandley was shot to death on Main Street, Conroe, Texas in broad daylight. Although his white killer was well known to the local citizens no one was ever brought to trial. Forty years on his grandson Clarence discovers the raped and murdered body of a white teenage girl, and is about to learn that the only evidence of guilt that a corrupt and racist legal system needs is the colour of his skin.

Despite his obvious innocence and a complete lack of evidence against him, Clarence is condemned to death after years of trial and appeal. And with only days left until his execution, Clarence's lawyers have only one chance left -- to break the silent conspiracy of hate and expose the killer's true identity.

WHITEWASH: THE CLARENCE BRANDLEY STORY is a powerful drama of courage and the search for justice and truth in the face of implacable bigotry.
