Special Memorial Day Blackman's Read Aloud Hour, Lynching In America: Targeting Black Military Veter

This special reading comes from the Equal Justice Initiative website: You must understand our history our black ancestors served in every conflict or war this country was involved. They served with honor and distinction only to come home from the service to face acts of terror, torture​ , white mob violence​ , and public lynching. So, when you remember those of our black ancestors who paid​ the ultimate sacrifice on foreign shores. Please remember those who served with honor and respect over there only to savagely murdered simply because of their skin color over here.
