The red record : [tabulated statistics and alleged causes of lynching in the United States] by Ida B Wells-Barnett( )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A shocking and powerful account of lynching written by activist, journalist, and former slave Ida B. Wells In the postbellum American South, lynching was a frightfully common occurrence, perpetrated so frequently that most Southern politicians and leaders turned a blind eye to the practice. This vicious form of vigilante "justice" was in truth a thinly veiled racist justification for murderous violence. In 1892 alone, more than two hundred African Americans were lynched, with alleged offenses ranging from "attempted stock poisoning" to "insulting whites." The Red Record tabulates these scenes of brutality in clear, objective statistics, allowing the horrifying facts to speak for themselves. Alongside the tally, author Ida B. Wells describes actual occurrences of lynching, and enumerates the standard rationalizations for these extrajudicial killings, her original intent for the pamphlet to shame and shock the apathetic public--and spark change. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices."
