BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: THE LYNCHING OF BLACK PEOPLE :
Lynching !!!! The practice of Killing Black People by an extrajudicial mob action, occurred in the United States from 1890 to the 1920s with a peak in the annual toll in 1892, lynching were also common in the old west. It is associated with re-imposition of " White Supremacy" in the South after the Civil War. The granting of U.S. Constitutional Rights to Freedmen in the Reconstruction era ( 1865 to 1877) aroused anxieties among American White Citizens who came to blame African American for their own war time hardship, economic loss, and forfeture of Social Privilege.
