Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid: the Jonestown Massacre

On November 18, 1978,  followers of the People’s Temple in Jonestown, Guyana took part in an act of “Revolutionary Suicide” at the urging of their leader, Jim Jones.
This week we tell the story of the rise of Jim Jones and the People’s Temple that ultimately lead to over 900 deaths – 300 of which were children.
