[b]100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS[/b]

BY Ralph Ginzburg

[b] Recent racial violence against Blacks is on the rise. From distant parts
of the United States, reports of racial violence fill the daily news.
That Blacks are killed in the streets of New York while being beaten and
harassed in the hills of Georgia, should come as no surprise. America
has a long but seldom discussed history of violence against its Black
citizens. The typical American response has been to ignore this history.
Unfortunately this further obscures a historical problem which can only
be resolved through defensive vigilance and an awareness of the scope
and magnitude of the problem.

Through Ralph Ginzburg's 100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS, we gain insight and
understanding of the magnitude of racial violence. The hidden past is
illuminated to rekindle the defensive vigilance of this generation.

First published in 1962, 100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS is as relevant today as
it was then. It presents the reader with vivid newspaper accounts of a
"red record of racial atrocities." It is a simple and straightforward
presentation. Lacking narration, the news articles speak for
themselves. Through them we witness a history of racial atrocities that
we cannot afford to forget. Ginzburg skillfully selected articles from
a wide range of papers, large and small, radical and conservative,
white and Black. Through them, he has created a documentary of
lynchings. The collection of articles which extend into the 1960's
provides a sobering view of American history. Few who read the book
will remain unaffected by this view.

Out of print since 1972, 100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS has been on the wanted
list of many readers. The Black Classic Press edition of 100 YEARS OF
LYNCHINGS assures continued access to this important work and to the
tragic history it chronicles.[/b]
