The Lyncher in Me: A Search for Redemption in the Face of History

In June 1920, in Duluth, Minnesota, a mob of over 10,000 convened upon the police station, inflamed by the rumour that black circus workers had raped a white teenage girl - charges that would later be proven false. This memoir explores the perspectives of both the victims and the perpetrators of this crime.
