The Elaine race massacre of 1919 is understood as one of the worst in US history. Parts of the story are still in dispute
Here is a story that is new to me. The effects of the slaughter are still being felt today. In the article they actually interview a bloke whose beloved grandfather was a lyncher.
There seem to be a number of these atrocities coming to light all the time. Perhaps President Joe should create a truth and reconciliation commission to investigate the massacres and deal with the theft. There seems to be a concerted effort to subjugate Black folk.
Not many movies get made about these stories.
