"On the afternoon of New Year's Day 1923, a search party knocked on the door to Sam Carter's house. They were looking for a recently escaped black convict named Jesse Hunter accused of assaulting a white woman in Sumner, Florida. At the end of the day, 45-year-old Sam Carter, a blacksmith, was to be the one hanging from a tree."
