White women, rape, and the power of race in Virginia, 1900-1960

Author: Lisa Lindquist Dorr

Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
For decades, historians have primarily analyzed charges of black-on-white rape in the South through accounts of lynching or manifestly unfair trial proceedings, suggesting that white southerners responded with extralegal violence and sham trials when white women accused black men of assault. Here, Lisa Lindquist Dorr challenges this view.
