Photographs of Lynching: London Exhibit
Without Sanctuary: Mementos of Lynching
In the decades after the Civil War, segregationists practiced a uniquely American form of terrorism against black citizens. A wrenching exhibit in London reminds us that such executions were often treated as celebrations. Warning: These images are disturbing! “Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography From America” is presented by Autograph APB, on view at Rivington Place, London, until July 30, 2011.
