Murder in 1932

Posted by ANN INOSHITA

This poem is written from Admiral Stirling’s point of view. In this poem, I wanted to include information on how men accused of rape that resulted in a hung jury were back in prison for their own safety while white men and a white woman accused of murder were sheltered in residence on the USS Alton.

From Christy’s last line, I wanted to use “shame” and “inscribed” in my title. Instead, I ended up using “shame” as part of my title and “inscribed” in the last line of my poem.
