When over 900 followers of the People's Temple religious movement committed suicide in 1978, they left a legacy of suspicion and fear. Most accounts of this mass suicide describe the members as brainwashed dupes and overlook the Christian and socialist ideals that originally inspired People's Temple members. Hearing the Voices of Jonestown restores the individual voices that have been erased, so that we can better understand what was created - and destroyed - at Jonestown, and why.
