"My daddy lynch"

Lynching is an extrajudicial punishment (usually a hanging), to intimidate and control a people. Violence in the American south against African-Americans rose in the aftermath of the Civil War. Unbelivably, mobs often took photographs of the lynchings and sold them as postcards.  James Allen has published a collection and established a forum on Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America (Warning: the images are graphic and disturbing).
