Summary note:
The End of American Lynching questions how we think about the dynamics of lynching, what lynchings mean to the society in which they occur, how lynching is defined, and the circumstances that lead to lynching. Ashraf H.A. Rushday looks at three lynchings over the course of the twentieth century-one in Coatesville, Pennsylvania in 1911, one in Marion, Indiana in 1930, and one in Jasper, Texas in 1998-to see how Americans developed two distinct ways of thinking and talking about this act before and after the 1930s.
