Joplin Lynching featured in Missouri Historical Review

The Missouri Historical Review, an award winning scholarly publication of the State Historical Society of Missouri, just published its January quarterly edition. Prominently featured in this edition is an article covering the 1903 Joplin lynching. The article is an adaptation of the chapters about the lynching from the book White Man’s Heaven by Kimberly Harper. If you are a member of the State Historical Society, you will receive a copy of the Missouri Historical Review in the mail. If not, you can find a copy to read at the Joplin Public Library on their current magazine shelves. Unfortunately, the library has not yet bought a copy of the book, which is definitely recommended, even if you get the chance to read the article in the Review.

    Received the issue yesterday, and although I had a ton of stuff to do last night, I took the time to read the article. I’m glad I did. Although I had read about this incident before, the article provided an exceptionally clear discussion of what actually happened and perceptive insights on how this fit into the larger story of lynchings at this time. Congratulations!
