The queen : the forgotten life behind an American myth
Large Print Book
Large print edition.
In 1974 Chicago, Linda Taylor reported a phony burglary--a lie about stolen furs and jewelry. Soon after, the police discovered she was a a welfare cheat. Taylor, it turned out, was also a kidnapper, and possibly a murderer, but nobody seemed to care about anything but her welfare thievery. Growing up in the Jim Crow South, Taylor was made an outcast because of the color of her skin. As she rose in infamy, the press and politicians manipulated her image to demonize poor black women. The Queen tells the story of what was done to Linda Taylor, what she did to others, and what was done in her name.
