Toni Morrison’s Paradise, tells a story about a horrifying scene of mass violence and chronicles its genesis in an all-black small town in rural Oklahoma. Founded by the descendants of freed slaves and survivors in exodus from a hostile world, the community of Ruby is built on righteousness, rigidly enforced moral law, and fear. Seventeen miles away, there is another group of exiles has gathered in a promised land of their own. And it is upon these women in flight from death and despair that nine male citizens of Ruby will lay their pain, their terror, and their murderous rage.
