I am currently in the process of creating several (230) nooses for my African American Religious Culture (the name will probably change) show. There were 230 people lynched in 1892 and the lynchings continued until the early 1950’s. If they are used in this project, the goal will be to help people understand the culture that African American heroes like Malcolm X and James Cone were responding to.
This culture of hate saw everything about blacks from their skin tone to their physical features as being ugly and evil was a culture that could not be ignored. Blacks needed to fight for their own humanity.
