Always in Season

Claudia Lacy wants answers. When her 17-year-old son, Lennon, was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, the authorities quickly ruled his death a suicide. In light of suspicious details surrounding his death, and certain that her son would not take his own life, Claudia is convinced Lennon was lynched.

ALWAYS IN SEASON explores the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans, connecting this form of historic racial terrorism to racial violence today as Claudia moves from paralyzing grief to leading the fight for justice for her son.
