Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror

Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror

Nearly 4,000 black southerners were killed by white mobs in the decades following the Civil War, including 102 victims in North Carolina, according to a new study. At least seven lynchings that fit the pattern took place in WNC's mountain counties, while another was committed by Polk County men who crossed into upstate South Carolina.

 

After conducting the most comprehensive study of Southern lynching to date, the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit organization in Montgomery, Alabama, on Feb. 10 2015 released a report, "Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror."
