A Little More on Lynchings

Why on earth would I want to revisit this subject after this post remembering the Leo Frank incident, but I couldn’t get the subject off my mind all weekend.

Over at History Is Elementary I’ve posted Sins of the Fathers with links to an online project with several postcard images taken at lynchings, a little history concerning the word “lynching”, and the Billie Holiday song Strange Fruit which many considered to be one of the first anti-racism songs of the modern era.
