Left & the Law: Lynching

program date: 
Mon, 03/16/2015
 Mike Snedeker and Jan Haaken talk about a new report by the Equal Justice Initiative-- Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror. The report, available online, documents EJI’s multi-year investigation into lynching in twelve Southern states during the period between Reconstruction and World War II. It demonstrates that capital punishment was a rationalized form of lynching, sharing the purpose of maintaining African americans in the condition of serfdom.
