35 years ago as a young student of American history I saw for the first time a picture of a lynching; one of the pictures in the Flash movie shown on this site. I too focused away from the body, the dead mass, and looked in the faces of the living people many looking right at the photographer recording their work. I pray to God that I may never experience in person people like me killing so heartlessly and stupidly. It is only with the backdrop of the these southern trees bearing their strange fruit that one can understand, or begin to understand, the enormous courage of any Black American who stood up in the Pullman strikes or sat down in a bus.

Is it easier for one to see the effects of this on "black americans" today...?
Dare you to get on a bus full of blacks now and look at everyone's faces. I'll bet it's like a time capsule back a couple of decades or a century. Sometimes, it's like things have never changed. It's like that in some spots of certain cities. Atlanta, for one.
