During 1919, African Americans bravely resisted a cascade of mob attacks that used violence to protect white supremacy. Law enforcement often failed to protect African Americans or even aided the mobs. What does the response of African Americans at the time tell us about the history of minority and police relations? In what ways are contemporary movements like Black Lives Matter similar to the efforts of African Americans in 1919 to protect themselves and change policing methods?
