This narrative is very valuable for the flesh and blood details it provides to the era of lynching. Cameron records his terror at seeing familiar white faces, people he had cut grass and run errands for, howling for his blood. The lynching was not sudden--people moved into town days beforehand, and news of the impending atrocity was even broadcast on the radio. Firemen sent in to disperse the crowd with water spray instead invited the mob to come aboard the trucks and cut the hoses. Cameron tried to hide among other black prisoners, but the mob threatened to hang them all, causing them to finally give him up. Possibly most horrible of all, these events took place not in the South, but in Marion, Indiana.
Cameron faithfully tells his tale seemingly without embarrassment or residual hatred. His father was worthless. He and his friends were indeed up to no good the night they were arrested.Read more ›
