Four university students in Berkeley, California, friends who call themselves the "Four Indians," decide to protest a Civil War reenactment in one of their hometowns. Something goes terribly wrong when a student pretends to get lynched and acting turns into reality. T. Geronimo Johnson’s newest novel Welcome toBraggsville (William Morrow, 2015) takes on issues of class, race, politics, and even social media.
