Download a free ebook this month entitled, The Red Record Tabulated Statistics and Alleged Causes of Lynching in the United States by Ida B. Wells.

Annotation (Digital History.uh.edu): After the Civil War, many black men were lynched in the South. In 1892, Ida B. Wells, a black journalist in Memphis launched a crusade against lynching. Wells lost several friends to lynching and so her passion became telling the country of these awful happenings. She published several articles discussing the executions of her friends. She then went on to publish a pamphlet, “Southern Horrors: Lynch Law in All Its Phases,” and a book, A Red Record. It was Wells who ultimately helped end this violence.
