December 13, 1921: Curley Hackney

Today we learn about a lynching in Texas through the pages of the Concordia Blade-Empire (Concordia, Kansas) dated December 14, 1921:


Curley Hackney is Third Man to be Lynched in State in Week

DALLAS, Tex., Dec. 14.—Curley Hackney, lynched at Waco last night, is the second white man lynched by a mob in Texas in recent years, and the third man lynched in the state this week.

A negro was lynched Sunday night at Fort Worth and another hung from a tree near Gradewater Monday. Tom Vickery, white, was lynched at Fort Worth a year ago this month.l

Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
