520 |a Documents the Institute's multi-year investigation into lynching in twelve Southern states during the period between Reconstruction and World War II. Our researchers verified 3959 racial terror lynchings of African Americans in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia between 1877 and 1950 -- at least 700 more lynchings of black people in these states than previously reported in the most comprehensive work done on lynching to date. Makes the case that lynching of African Americans was terrorism, a widely supported phenomenon used to enforce racial subordination and segregation.
