Summary:
Over 50 white-on-black race riots erupted in the United States between 1898 and 1945; at least 25 race riots occurred in 1919 alone. And while it would be convenient to believe that the race riots that happened in the first half of the 20th century in America were confined to a single geographic region, in actuality, they occurred throughout the country.
