Public Abstract: This dissertation is a study focused on the sexual and racial dynamics that fostered an environment that allowed for, and condoned the lynching of black women.

By examining variables that affected black women's exclusive position in American society, it adds a new dimension to the rape/lynch theory.

By exploring lynching through the eyes and experiences of black female lynching victims, the rape and lynching victim becomes one in the same.

Rosa Richardson: (SC)
Marie Scott: (OK)
