July 17, 1903: Dennis Head

Today we learn about a South Carolina lynching through the pages of the Mount Carmel Item (Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania) dated July 18, 1903:


Innocent Negro Lynched.

Charleston, S. C., July 18.—Because of the murder of Hall, a white farmer of Lexington county, near Batesburg by Edwards, a negro, Dennis Head, a negro, was lynched by a mob in the adjoining county of Aiken yesterday. Dennis was not accused of complicity in the crime, but was supposed to know of the whereabout of the man. This he stoutly denied to the last.


Today I am going to do something a little different. In looking for a lynching for today I search for negro lynchings in 1903. I did this because I was looking for an article about an unknown negro. In looking at all the headlines and reading about the different lynchings, I thought today I will share the headlines found in this search. I will give the name of the lynched as well as the headlines. Imagine if this was something you saw in the paper on a regular basis. I think it would have been terrifying to be inundated by these acts and know that the color of their skin was a big part of what made them victims.
