(p.1) Introduction
Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home

Tameka Bradley Hobbs

University Press of Florida

The opening chapter of the book provides a general overview of the history of the practice of lynching in the United States, including summary historiography of the scholarship on racial violence. From the national level, the focus will telescope into an examination of anti-black violence in Florida, placing lynching and racial violence on scale with what took place in other states. Through this approach the readers will recognize that even though Florida is frequently viewed as an atypical southern state, its African American citizens faced a disproportional threat when compared to blacks living in other southern states. Taken together, the ground covered in this section, traveling chronologically through the decade of the 1930s, will lay the foundation for the subsequent chapters.
