First released in 1962, a hundred Years of Lynchings is as proper this present day because it used to be then. It provides the reader with shiny newspaper debts of a "red checklist of racial atrocities." it's a easy and simple presentation. missing narration, the inside track articles communicate for themselves. via them we witness a historical past of racial atrocities that we can't manage to pay for to put out of your mind. Ginzburg skillfully chosen articles from quite a lot of papers, huge and small, radical and conservative, white and Black. via them, he has created a documentary of lynchings. the gathering of articles which expand into the Sixties offers a sobering view of yankee heritage. Few who rad this publication will stay unaffected via this view.
