The Black Female Lynch Victim: The Case of Laura Nelson

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper investigates how the phenomenon of lynching black women, along with black men, retarded black economic advancement in Jim Crow America. Until recently, there was little research about the special nature of black women as lynch victims. In 1980, Robert L. Zangrando wrote the definitive book about the NAACP’s crusade against lynching; The NAACP Crusade Against Lynching, 1909-1950, yet he makes no distinction between male and female victims. An example of a black female lynch victim is the case of Laura Nelson, who was lynched in Okemah, Oklahoma on May 25, 1911, two years after the founding of the NAACP. A picture of the lynching of Laura Nelson is the only extant photograph of a black woman-lynching victim. Nelson, like the majority of black female lynching victims, tried to protect her family and paid the supreme price. The protection of the family was essential for economic advancement, yet lynching was a major cause of the destruction of the black family.
