What a day it was back in Waco, Texas on May 5th 1916! A beautiful spring day and folks were anxious to be outside a good day to lynch some N-word.

Let's say you were looking through a trunk in the attic and came across this photo. How would you know what held the attention of the crowd that day? It could be anything politician making a speech, circus in town, who knows.

The heinous torture and murder of a man would not naturally spring to mind. But that is exactly what these well dressed citizens of Waco were watching that day, and, by their presence, empowering.

I wonder if the mother of the victim managed to get a view the gallows from some hiding place out of sight of the mob. If she did, what went through her mind as she watched the rope tighten and saw the look of horror on her son's face the second before his neck snapped? Did she think of the baby she suckled, remember the little boy she read to we will never know.
