Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890–1930 demonstrates that popular lynching plays were mechanisms through which African American communities survived actual and photographic mob violence. Often available in periodicals, lynching plays were read aloud or acted out by black church members, schoolchildren, and families. Koritha Mitchell shows that African Americans performed and read the scripts in community settings to certify to each other that lynch victims were not the isolated brutes that dominant discourses made them out to be. Instead, the play scripts often described victims as honorable heads of household being torn from model domestic units by white violence. In closely analyzing the political and spiritual uses of black theatre during the Progressive Era, Mitchell demonstrates that audiences were shown affective ties in black families, a subject often erased in mainstream images of African Americans. Examining lynching plays as archival texts that embody and reflect broad networks of sociocultural activism and exchange in the lives of black Americans, Mitchell finds that audiences were rehearsing and improvising new ways of enduring in the face of widespread racial terrorism. Images of the black soldier, lawyer, mother, and wife helped readers assure each other that they were upstanding individuals who deserved the right to participate in national culture and politics. These powerful community coping efforts helped African Americans band together and withstand the nation's rejection of them as viable citizens.

The Living Age

before Judge Lynch, whilst a threat or the bare suggestion of a bribe was a “
contempt” punishable by instant death. In a word, the accused had a fair trial.
Such was Lynch law in its palmy days. But it is totally different from that now.

In 1964 six events occurred in America which continue to have influence in society today: the murders of three young civil rights activists in Mississippi; the animated young prizefighter who angered some Americans and amused most; four musicians from Liverpool, England who rocked the music world; two encounters in the Gulf of Tonkin; the investigative report that was subjected to widespread doubt; and the unsuccessful campaign for the presidency in 1964 by a U.S. Senator that became a crusade. Joseph Mangano has written a historical account of each of these six incidents, accompanied by an analysis of the enduring significance of each twenty-five years later. Widely varying areas, such as military policy, race relations, popular music, sports, electoral politics, and truth in government, were gravely affected by these incidents. Mangano carefully weaves a theme between the six incidents to explain their continued relevance in American society.

Inspired by a true story, A Lynching in the Bible Belt is an interraccial love story intertwined with a young lawyer's pursuit of justice against a wealthy white supremacist, who, in the guise of Christianity and under distortions of scripture, espouses racism and contempt for "race mixing" and incites a member of his religious fellowship to lynch an African-American high school student and his white girlfriend. Subplots include how the young lawyer gains strength and courage from his upbringing, from his best friend from childhood, and from the woman he loves, and stands up to prejudice after having lived with guilt over his own silence when confronted with prejudice in the past. The story explores the institutional prejudice that still prevades the field of law, how tolerance and racism are both passed on in families from one generation to the next, and the problems of interracial romance in the face of family prejudice. Ultimately, however, the story is about friendship, love, courage, and how they triumph over prejudice. A Lynching in the Bible Belt includes much courtroom drama, including, for sake of accuracy and authenticity, actual legal cases and principles of law, drawing from the author's experience as a trial lawyer.
