Discuss the two writers’ depiction of “lynching, violence, and corporeal crimes against African Americans” at the turn of the twentieth century.

Where W. E. B. Du Bois’s short story “Of the Coming of John” (1903) is a work of fiction, Ida B. Wells’ Southern Horrors (1892) is a non-fictive historical work. Discuss the two writers’ depiction of “lynching, violence, and corporeal crimes against African Americans” at the turn of the twentieth century. Do the authors seem to make similar or dissimilar claims about the justifications for and causes of lynching? How do their works address and refute common rationales for lynching? http://xroads.virginia.edu/HYPER/DUBOIS/cover.html http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14975/14975-h/14975-h.htm Discussion Board #4 on Du Bois and Wells
