‘The Lynchings Of African Americans in this Country’ Tonight, on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

102

April 11, 2018 by The ReadyWriter


The Equal Justice Initiative will open the nation’s first memorial dedicated to lynching victims in Montgomery, Alabama on April 26. The new museum is also dedicated to slavery and explores slavery, lynchings, segregation and modern inequality issues that will have interactive content, which will confront visitors with a history of some of this nation’s horrendous past.

It’s a painful topic but a part of our history rarely discussed.

The body of Rubin Stacy hanging from a tree in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, July 19, 1935. He was lynched by a mob for allegedly attacking a white woman.

Between 1877 and 1950 Public torture and the murder of African Americans was common in the south. This story begins on February 1, 1893, in the town of Paris, Texas, but it could just as easily have begun on 4,000 other dates and in dozens of other American localities. During the American Civil War, Paris had a population of fewer than 1,000 people. About a third of them were black slaves, who were eventually freed in the wake of the Union victory and the abolition of slavery in 1865. But despite passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which formally outlawed slavery, the postwar decades were widespread with systematic, vicious violence against black communities in the South.

It’s a painful story of America’s history of racial injustice. However, in order to heal the deep pain of our present we must address the truth of our past.

Join our host Ms. Tracy L. Bell at 6: 30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” for her commentary on “The Lynchings Of African Americans in this Country“.

All “Links” in this post will access the online show.

Hope to meet you on the air!!

        There are countless stories on lynching and how the black man was hated in this country. It was all about control, still is to this very day. That’s why we’re being gunned down by cops with not one conviction or jail time for murder. Be angry about that!!

    Lynching wasn’t enough black bodies were then burnt. The hatred toward African Americans was and still is very strong and real in America. It’s about dominance and power which is why the racist Republicans blocked alot of things Obama tried to accomplish. Trump is their retaliation for their hatred of the black man in America. We are hated. Please believe this.

    You’re on the right track Tracy with this right here.

    a new museum in Montgomery, Alabama aims to advance truth and reconciliation while addressing the often unspoken reality of racial horror in America.

    Burning black people alive, hanging them, mutilating their bodies — the graphic history of U.S. racial violence is a shameful and difficult thing to confront.

    Being hung and burned alive is horrible. Just horrible to know it all happened in this country. When you look at those photos of those white men standing around proud of that shit, how can you not feel some kinda way? Yet we are still killed and haunted and black people still marrying and hooking up outside their race.

    Do you know that was the main reason a black man was lynched? For supposedly raping a white women??!!!

    Yea think about that

    The images uptop are hurtful
    But we must be mindful that this is a part of history not discussed. They even glorify MLK’S history. I guess this way it can be included in a school’s curriculum. Let’s be honest, you start talking about how blacks were lynched, these youngsters would be terrified.

    I hope to see the Underground museum in Ohio this summer. I’ve been thinking lately about how so many teens and people live in fear and have developed PTSD from it. But then there are so many people from this era still suffering with pain. I know they have PTSD too. Sometimes it seems that as the years pass, people forget they still need to heal as well.
