This blog started as an attempt to find a lynching for every day of the year. It is a grim part of United States history that I fear too many find easy to shrug away. After two years, I am now focusing on finding more information on the lynchings I have covered as well as posting about lynchings I have not, regardless of excuse given for the lynching.

The Afro-American Council designated June 4, 1899 as a national day of fasting to protest lynchings and massacres.
