Title
The blood red record : a review of the horrible lynchings and burning of Negroes by civilized white men in the United States, as taken from the records
Summary
Lists of lynched and burned African Americans in the US after 1893. Bruce condemns such lynchings and treatment of blacks at the hands of so-called "civilized," Christian whites, mostly but not entirely in the South since the Civil War. He makes a strong statement for corrective measures and for acceptance of the African American as a full-fledged citizen. Bruce was a newspaper correspondent, historian, a widely read and influential African American journalist, and an early black militant.
