The Lynchings in Duluth


On the evening of June 15th, 1920, in Duluth, Minnesota, three young black men, accused of the rape of a white woman, were pulled from their jail cells and lynched by a mob numbering in the thousands. Yet for years, the incident was nearly forgotten. This updated, second edition of The Lynchings of Duluth includes a new preface by the author, additional research and notes, and suggestions for further reading.
