Description

Micheal Westerman was a rowdy nineteen-year - old who drove around Todd County, Kentucky, with a Confederate flag flying from his pickup. One evening while driving to Nashville Westerman was chased by two cars full of black teenagers and shot by Freddie Morrow, a passenger of one of the vehicles. Now what was probably just an expression of rebellion has spiraled out of control as white supremacy groups proclaim Westerman to be their latest martyr and race relations, in the Todd County and the surrounding areas, rage. (March 1996)
