BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: LYNCHING OF BLACK PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES:
Lynching which is he practice of killing people by extrajudicial mob action, occurred in the United States chiefly from the late 18th century through the 1960s's. Lynching took place from 1890 to the 1920's with a peak in the annual toll in 1892. Their is reliable record to show that 3446 Blacks were lynched between 1882 and 1968. Southern States created new constitutions between 1882 and 1910 with provisions that effectively disfranchised most blacks as well as poor whites. So people who did not have the vote were excluded from erving on juries and most blacks were shut out of the Political System.
