Slide 1: Here I present to you a short few minutes clip of what African people went through since their arrival in the USA “THE LAND OF THE FREE.” I wanted to present a short presentation on the horrors of slavery which the end product were black codes, Jim crow and LYNCHING. Lynching, the forgotten evil The declaration of Independence 1776 clearly stated that all men are equal. The word lynch derives from Charles Lynches surname. Slide 2: This presentation was just a small glimpse of the life of Southern America from the mid 1800’s to the 1960’s. So many people in this day and age don’t even know this happened. So I bring these images to those who have forgotten and to those who don’t know. Lynching, the forgotten evil I swear when your taught about the civil war, black people and slavery is never mentioned. Willie Lynch “The making of a slave” Slide 3: But first lets try and wrap up some history of how we got on to the land known as the USA. A plantation in 1862 Virginia 1862 Yorktown Virginia A plantation in South Carolina Slide 4: On board the La Amistad 1839 there was a slave rebellion onboard the ship which saw the Africans over power the crew, only to be recaptured moment later. Must I remind you the horrors of the Zong Massacre 1781. They threw us over board to claim insurance as they classed us as cargo. 133 alive and breathing Africans chained together perished in the waters. Each African was some ones mother, father, brother, sister. Slave ships Slide 5: We lied side by side with no room to move we were lucky if we could turn over. They were chained to dead bodies riddled with diseases. Food was served into their hands in no order so no guarantee you would get fed. Women were dragged into captain’s cabin to be raped.

Federal Hall Only a few streets away from the 1712 slave revolt. Slide 8: Nathan Bedford Forrest a confederate general was selected as the imperial wizard of 1867. With the badge they manipulated us from achieving our goals and living a normal life. With this badge and hood they hid from us to do their work of evil. A Klansman study the kloran. KU KLUX KLAN 1865-1870’s Slide 9: Lynching As the Freedmen had NO rights, lynching of Negroes went unpunished and to this day there are still a small number of lynching still existing. The rise in lynching is in time with the expansion of the KKK in 1960’s and 1920’s respectively. The confederate states lost the war to the Union and wanted to manipulate the freedmen and preserve white supremacy during the reconstruction period led by president Andrew Johnson. 1861-1865 Jefferson Davis Slide 10: Now take a moment for these people who died unlawfully on the slave ships and in the USA.

For all those modern day people who use racism as their excuse for failing. What you experienced is nothing compared to what those unfortunate people went through. Slide 23: I guess it will make us think twice about using the word. NIGGER Lynching, the forgotten evil
