• NEVER forget!
  • Lynchings were not rare acts done by a few crazed whites
  • Lynchings were public family outings
  • Notice the expressions of the people in the crowd
  • Lynching postcards were popular and sent through U.S. Mail
  • All lynchings ended with the souvenir ceremony: the victims body was dismembered and given out to the attendees
  • The most prized “souvenir” which usually went to the lynch mob leader was the Black man’s penis (which truly was the psychological cause behind lynching in the first place; the original penis envy)
