Today, the Equal Justice Institute (EJI) released a report about lynching in the United States between 1877 to 1950, and their research indicates that hundreds more of African American men, women, and children were lynched during that time period than previously thought, bringing the number of victims to nearly 4,000. Lynching was a form of terrorism used against Blacks during that time period, where mobs of Whites would hang, burn, shoot, and beat Blacks to death as a form of intimidation and control.One of those who lost their lives was soldier William Little.An excerpt:"The year 1919 was a time of resurgence by the Ku Klux Klan. Seventy-six Blacks lost their lives to mob violence in southern states that year. One of them, Private William Little of Blakely, Ga., was apparently lynched precisely because he was wearing his uniform."The accounts of the time state that a few days after being mustered out, he took a train home and was beaten by local Whites for wearing his uniform around town."The mob made him remove it."A couple of days later, he was caught wearing it again — Little protested that he had no other clothes — and was beaten to death and left at the end of town."EJI plans to build memorials and monuments to the slain throughout the South in an effort to not only dignify the dead but force Americans to face their history.Read more and listen to jazz singer Billie Holiday's ode to those who lost their lives during that time here:
