The Echoes Of Lynching Violence

(p.213) Epilogue Strange Fruit, Bitter Seeds
Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home

Tameka Bradley Hobbs

University Press of Florida

The unrecognized victims of lynching violence were the women and children left behind while the black men who protected and provided for them were murdered. The epilogue highlights the stories of family members-primarily wives, mothers, and sisters-devastated by lynching violence. It also focuses on the slippery ground of contested community memories, and how groups on difference sides of the color line make meaning of extralegal violence.
