A Lesson Before Dying PDF

A Lesson Before Dying (pdf) is set in the fictional community of Bayonne, Louisiana, in the late 1940s. It is the story of one man’s doomed attempt to help another man rise above the prejudice and hatred running rampant in the Jim Crow south.

The novel opens with the news that a black man named Jefferson has been convicted of murder. Jefferson has been given the death penalty. The problem is that the slow-witted Jefferson swears he’s innocent. The crime went down like this: Jefferson, heading to a bar, decided to go to a liquor store with two acquaintances instead. The two men began arguing with the man behind the counter, and shots were fired. When the smoke cleared, Jefferson was alive and three men were dead.
