Judge Lynch's Court in America" The Number of Negro Convicts in Prison in America, and Other Injustice Done to the Negro in America

Houston: n.d. [1913]. Paperback. frontis (portrait), 2 photos (together on one page), 2 illustrations, 166p. plus (10)p. advertisements for a variety of businesses and publications. Softcover in original wrapper. 23cm. Head of backstrip chipped. Modest cover spotting, soil and wear. A couple of corners creased. Title page slightly foxed. Rev. Branch, an African American, outraged but far from a firebrand, was a Baptist minister in Houston, Texas. As the title suggests, Branch ranges beyond lynching to other injustices against African Americans including rampant police misconduct. As to politics, not discouraged by Roosevelt's loss in 1912, he optimistically supported and predicted the election of Roosevelt in 1916 (see page 78). Latest date cited in the text is 1913 which seems right for a publication date. Very Good. Item #88015
