For this week’s assignment in HIST 701, I am using the Oxford Historical Scholarship website to searched another area I have an interest in, lynching of Veterans and Lynchings in Northern Florida.
My search queries returned three books. I was surprised at how little returns I had on my subject matter. It would only show books, no articles, or newspapers. Perhaps I was using it incorrectly.
The Three books are:
Beyond Colored Town: The Changing Boundaries of Race Relations and African American Community Life in Miami, 1896–1945.by Gregory W. Bush.
Violent Masculinity: Ritual And Performance In Southern Lynching’s., by Kristina DuRocher,
The Rosewood Massacre: An Archaeology and History of Intersectional Violence. by Edward González-Tennant.
Honest Patriots: Loving a Country Enough to Remember Its Misdeeds, by Donald W. Shriver, Jr.
I used the Equal Justice Initiative websites lynching map. The map illustrates, number of, and who was, lynched in different States.
Gregory W. Bush indicates that between 1890-1930, Florida had the highest lynching rate of any State.
