This chapter provides readers with an analysis of the photojournalism and other visualities that were used by private and public organizations interested in civil rights activism who were working on anti-lynching consciousness-raising between World War II and 2000. The authors contend that this was the period that witnessed commentary about the “end” of U.S. lynchings, but this amnesia would be critiqued by those who learned about the evocative power of an anti-lynching travelling exhibit, entitled Without Sanctuary.
