Legacies of Lynching
Racial Violence and Memory
By (author) Jonathan Markovitz
Legacies of Lynching by Jonathan Markovitz
Book DescriptionEven today, as revealed by the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd in Jasper, Texas, and the national soul-searching it precipitated, lynching continues to pervade America's collective memory. Markovitz concludes with an analysis of debates about a recent exhibition of photographs of lynchings, suggesting again how lynching as metaphor remains always in the background of our national discussions of race and racial relations.
