Abolishment of slavery

Lynching is kill (someone), especially by hanging, for an alleged offense with or without a legal trial. Which started they were most frequent from 1890 to the 1920s, with a peak in 1892. A direct quotation from the book is “there aren’t enough of those same white people who would admit how they feel, or even if they did, would hang a white man for killing a black one. It’s as simple as that.” In the Roll of Thunder many people could be lynched if they didn't follow the rules or even by talking to a white person disrespect fully. (https://youtu.be/h4ZyuULy9zs)
