Lynching in Duluth

It was the summer of 1920 in Duluth Minnesota, a crowd of five to ten thousand
people filled the streets in front of the police station
just to watch the lynching of several black men charged with raping a young woman.
Mike Fedo documents the event in lurid detail.

This was the book chosen for our book club for January in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday
Tomorrow while Barack Obama is being sworn in we will be discussing the truths and fallacies
of this Historical event.
I had never heard of this story, it was never discussed in any of my History classes.
Reading the book opened my eyes as to why it had been buried by embarrassed State and City Politicians.

Bobby Walsh was spoiled, and Sandy Teale liked the bad boy image he had.
What ever happened that night at the circus it is highly unlikely
that any one other then Bobby had any contact with her.
Some how a few blacks angered them and the story Bobby told his
dad and Sandy went along with got totally out of hand.
I couldn't put the book down, and it is so strange, even though
I knew the outcome I kept hoping the good guys would get
there in time to save the 3 young men.
This book would make a powerful screenplay, I wish I had that talent.

Tomorrow when Barack Obama is sworn in as President,
I hope that it will be the beginning of a new America.
One problem though is the right wing talk jocks like Rush
Limbaugh and his ilk who will try to destroy him as they did Bill Clinton.
Maybe this time people will turn them off.
