Race ‘Riots’ and Racial Violence

This lecture will explore the use of racial violence to enforce and maintain a white economic and social power structure in the United States. Through an unflinching discussion of lynching and other extra-legal mob activity, the lecture will invite participants to examine the role that racial violence played in mobilizing resistance to Jim Crow, which in turn facilitated the development of the early Civil Rights Movement.
