Without Sanctuary: Photographs and Postcards of Lynching in America
Link to URL
Collection by James Allen. Much of the material displayed by this site is of a disturbing nature. Lynchings were commonplace in the American South up to the Civil Rights era and were rarely prosecuted - partly due to the absence of a Federal anti-lynching law. The pride citizens felt in participating in a lynching is evident in the willingess of participants to photograph - and even turn into postcards - their experience.
