Al - this was one of your most moving posts, ever. Thanks for it.


Al Brophy

Thanks for the kind words, Ian.


Some reading the post may assume that there was an actual attack. My understanding is that the black man accidentally stepped on the foot of the white woman. See 20 HBL LJ 83. If that's the actual history, the post would be improved by clarification. The factual reality would also highlight the insanity of the threat of lynching and the subsequent riot.
