Singer Paul Robeson was a key figure in
the anti-lynching movement of the 1930s.

What is lynching?  Do you need some background on what lynching was and why it matters today?  Take five minutes to watch this video.

Our friends at the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) worked with artist Molly Crabapple to produce an animated video that explores the history of racial terror and lynching in the United States.  It is worth your time to watch.
