Note: Bessie talks about an uncle who was falsely accused of rape and lynched. The victim explained that it was a white boy but no one listened to her. Bessie's uncle Gene later made sure that Son had a proper burial. Uncle Gene was told in prayer that none of the men responsible for the lynching would live another year, and they didn't.
