Watching a lynching

This exhibition shows lynching as a form of social violence in the US from 1880 to the 1960s.

The Rivington Place gallery publicity explains, “by the early 1900s lynching was transformed into a major participatory form of entertainment and through photography into a space of commercial exchange and celebration.”
