Summary
On December 10, 1953, tragedy struck when Nathaniel Allen was murdered on the Sampit River by his white employer. Allen's death was recorded as an accidental drowning, a deliberate cover-up of the bullet hole seen by more than one witness. Three generations later, Phil Allen Jr. revisits this harrowing story through interviews, difficult conversations, and deep theological reflection, naming racism for what it is and working to chart a path toward reconciliation
