3 Fellow_Worker_of_Lynched_Man_S 4 Gov._Ritchie,_Possible_Preside
If you can bear it, read the news item, “Negro Worker Lynched for Demanding Pay,” in the Southern Worker, December 12, 1931, pp. 1-2.
There is an editorial on page 4.
Plus, I am posting a few other news stories from the time. The mainstream media gave the lynching only glancing notice. The Baltimore Afro-American was the only newspaper to give it serious coverage.
This is how blacks were treated then.
