Ellen Frankman and T.J. Raphael interview Jason Ward, author of the book, Hanging Bridge: Racial Violence and America’s Civil Rights Century, which explores lynchings which took place in the early and mid-twentieth century on a bridge on the Chickasawhay River in Shubuta, Mississippi.  The lynchings were investigated by Walter White, executive director of the NAACP and a light-skinned man who passed as white in his undercover work.  The NAACP published the report “Thirty Years of Lynching, 1889–1918,” in a vain attempt to get Congress to pass anti-lynching legislation.  WARNING: This segment contains graphic descriptions of violence.
