About this product
- DescriptionBetween 1850 and 1950, at least 115 women were lynched by mobs in the United States. The majority of these women were black. This book examines the phemen of the lynching of women, which was a much more rare experience than the lynching of men. Over the same hundred-year period covered in this text, more than 1,000 white men were lynched, while thousands of black men were murdered by mobs. Of particular importance in this examination is the role of race in lynching, particularly the increase in the number of black lynchings as the century progressed. Details are provided--when available--for the lynchings in an attempt to shine a light on this form of mob violence.
