Lynching Persists 1922

In the years following World War I, the tide of lynching in the United States began to recede. The NAACP contributed to its decline by sponsoring numerous attempts to pass antilynching legislation and publishing a book titled Thirty Years of Lynching in the United States, 1889–1918. But violence against African Americans and other ethnic and religious groups wasn’t completely eradicated. Americans continued to protest against injustice and the Government’s failure to uphold to the rights established by the Constitution of the United States.
