The lynching of Matthew Williams has often been clouded with questions about who was involved in the crime. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush talks with Charles Chavis, author of "Silent Shore: The Lynching of Matthew Williams and the Politics of Racism in the Free State," who has uncovered an account by an undercover Pinkerton detective. The full interview can be heard this Friday, 9 a.m., on Delmarva Today on WSDL 90.7 FM.

Don Rush is the News Director at Delmarva Public Media. An award-winning journalist, Don reports major local issues of the day, from sea level rise, to urban development, to the changing demographics of Delmarva.
