Crisp monochrome cinematography, thought-provoking interviews with scholars, and rarely-seen archival photographs document the rise of lynching in the postbellum South. This riveting documentary (which premiered at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC) travels to six different lynching sites around the South, with African-American historians, community activists, and descendants of lynching victims seeking to excavate the racist motivations behind this appalling practice.
