Americans lynching Americans Aug. 7 2010
By Joseph H. Warren - Published on
Format: Paperback
One thing that has managed to avoid the standard history books of the United States is the way that African Americans were denied basic human rights from the end of slavery times until federal legislation finally was passed by the congress during the Lyndon Johnson administration. My parents lived during this difficult time, and they always knew that "lynching" of fellow African Americans was a very real "current" event to them, that would occur, mainly in the south, or would occur to their relatives if, for whatever reason, the local white community determined that they deserved to be tortured and murdered without the due process of law. One of my neighbors, Emett Till, a 14 year old boy from Chicago, while visiting relatives in Money Mississippi, was "lynched" by a group of white men in 1955, when he was perceived as a "threat" to the local white community. These men who did the lynching were tried by an all white jury and never convicted of their crimes, and had the nerve to boast about what they did (torture and lynch) this teenager days later in the national media. To this day, none of these murderers have spent any time in jail. So, it would benifit all of us if the practice of lynching in the United States were be part of standard American high school teaching. This book, along with the book "Without Sanctuary", must be part of "standard" high school education in the United States.

Sobering Nov. 3 2012
By Steven G. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a sobering reminder of a not so distant American past. This shows the brutality and violence that was lynching. Lynching was the number one fear of every African American at one time in America and to this day a very ugly reminder that race relations in this country have been predicated on fear, violence and ignorance. This book was helpful when I wrote a term paper on LYNCHING AND VIOLENCE AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY. I earned a A on that paper from a Professor who studied under Woodrow Wilson's history instructor at University of Pacific. He is really old school and I came with the facts.

**RECOMMENDED FOR African American studies majors, Sociology majors and Race Relations studies as well as Political Science.

The pictures took me back to the time in which these senseless killings occurred. It's sad truth and necessary to see to avoid history repeating itself.
