Named after the work of Monroe Nathan Work, this project maps every known lynching in American history carried out by a mob. Each marker on the map represents one incident, and each color represents a different racial/ethnic demographic. The map is accompanied by a timeline that ranges from the first known lynching in 1835 to 1964. You can easily drag over the timeline to change the range of dates presented in the map. The map of the U.S. itself is presented in generalized regions like “the Deep South” and “the Far West” for historical context. One especially unique feature of this map is the way that the bibliography is linked – for each data point, the source cited can be accessed on the website after one click.
