Abstract (Summary)

Hundreds gathered at Friendship Worship Center in this small town in western South Carolina for the service, where white church leaders confessed the sins of their ancestors and apologized to blacks for [Anthony Crawford]'s lynching and other racial strife that took place nearly a century ago.

The idea for the service came when Crawford's lynching was highlighted during the U.S. Senate's formal apology last month to the descendants of victims of lynchings.

Area churches held the service to apologize for not trying to stop racial strife decades ago, including the lynching of Crawford's grandfather, Anthony, a wealthy farmer.
