About this product
- DescriptionCOMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF LYNCHING Published by the NAACP in 1919 to promote awareness of lynching in the United States, this seminal study provides information on the lynchings of 3,224 African-Americans between 1889 and 1918. With a new introduction by ted slave historian, Paul Finkelman. The book reprinted here is one of the most comprehensive studies of lynching in U.S. history. The NAACP data shows that most lynchings were t about interracial sex-the great paraia of the southern white Americans. Many blacks were lynched because they had allegedly committed murders. However, many of these murderers were never tried and the evidence against them was speculative at best. But other blacks were lynched for apparent reason, or for some mir transgression of social and racial rules-as understood by whites-such as 'inflammatory language, ' 'insulting remarks to a white woman, ' 'being disreputable, ' or just 'race prejudice.' This last cause-racial prejudice-was indeed at the root of almost all lynchings of African-Americans. -- Paul Finkelman, Introduction CONTENTS Summation of the Facts Disclosed in Tables The Story of One Hundred Lynchings Appendix I-Analyses of Number of Persons Lynched Appendix II-Chrological List of Persons Lynched in United States 1889 to 1918, Inclusive, Arranged by State
