Whenever possible, I have tempered the rough language that was common in the day, except in direct quotes or when it is relevant to the narrative.

Burned Alive In A Georgia Pyre
AN EYE FOR AN EYE -- A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...The Hodges Massacre And It’s Awful AftermathPut on your favorite indignation hat, my friend, because episode 253 is going to be one of those. This case was mentioned in the coverage of the Padrick case, episode 245, Slain For Her Own Salvation, and it piqued my interest and the interest of some listeners, so I looked into it. I hesitated going on. We live in tense times but I decided it’s important to remember how ugly things can get. All of my stories are cautionary tales, and we should never forget the dark past so we won’t go there again.That said, I do have two trigger warnings for this story. The newspapers of the day routinely used what you might call the soft N-word in describing African-Americans. I don’t like changing history, but I edited these when I could just for decency sake, but when it was necessary for context or in direct quotes, I read what was written. Also, I want to let you know that this narrative includes graphic descriptions of mob violence, so you might be prepared to fast-forward a little if it gets too intense for you.The Hodges family massacre sparked a wave of lynchings and other crimes against African-Americans in Georgia and nearby states.According to the Tuskegee Institute, between 1882 and 1964, 4,743 people were lynched in the United States, 3,446 of them African-Americans, 73 percent. Georgia racked up 531, 92 percent African-American, more lynchings than any other state except Mississippi, 581.***A creation Of Pulpular MediaZipRecruiter. The smartest way to hire.
