America's Dark Past: Lynching and the Power of Forgiveness

No one knows how many African-American men and women, and even some whites, were lynched from the Civil War through well into the 20th century. In an effort to capture the stories of elderly witnesses before first-person narratives are lost forever, the Rev. Angela Sims of the St. Paul School of Theology has begun a “Remembering Lynching” project to be housed at Baylor University’s Institute for Oral History. Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge reporting and analysis of religion news, offers an 8-minute video news story prepared by correspondent Bob Faw that explores the history of lynching and the power of faith in helping those who lived under the terror of the threat to forgive.
