It Happened Here
Walker, Tim
Teaching Tolerance, n24 p48-57 Fall 2003
This article recalls the painful lessons of a 1920 lynching of three of six African-American circus workers accused of robbery and rape. For African-American families in Duluth, the black-and-white photo taken in 1920 was a shocking reminder of the incident which this small city had tried for decades to forget. African-Americans believe that the racial climate in the city they have called home still hasn't changed. All the undercurrent of emotion and hate and fear that drove this community to do what it did in 1920 still exists.
