Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 demonstrates that popular lynching plays were mechanisms through which African American communities survived actual and photographic mob violence. Often available, lynching plays were read aloud or acted out by black church members, schoolchildren, and families. Koritha Mitchell shows that these performances and readings presented victims as honorable heads of household being torn from model domestic units by white violence, counter to the dominant discourses that depicted lynch victims as isolated brutes. _x000B_Examining lynching plays, Mitchell finds that audiences were rehearsing and improvising ways of enduring in the face of widespread racial terrorism. Images of the black soldier, lawyer, mother, and wife helped readers assure each other that they were upstanding individuals who deserved national rights. These powerful community coping efforts helped African Americans band together.
