Lynching and Forgiveness

  • Aired: 01/18/2013

  • Rating: NR
It is one of the darkest stains on America’s history—the lynching of thousands of African-American men, women and children in the 19th and 20th centuries—and not only in the South. Bob Faw speaks with elderly African-Americans who either witnessed lynching or lived in fear of it, and who eventually found ways to forgive.
