A welcome and valuable contribution to the growing field of lynching and mob violence studies.
[A] powerful new book. . . . To strip away the euphemism and reveal what's beneath, to link what has happened to what is happening should be the purpose of history. It's where Hobbs's book succeeds brilliantly and heartbreakingly.
--Florida Historical Quarterly
Provides valuable insights to the devastating impact of lynching on African American families and communities over the past seventy-five years. . . . A poignant and, at times, gut-wrenching glimpse into the intergenerational trauma of lynching.
--Journal of Southern History
Deeply researched and persuasively contextualized. . . . Highly recommended for all interested in the history of American lynching, southern violence, Florida History, and African American history.
--American Historical Review
Adds to the burgeoning historiography that underlines the interrelationship of the local and the global, civil rights, or rather the lack thereof, in the United States and in the international realm.
