In Toni Morrison’s 1989 book, Beloved, she discusses the history of American slavery and vividly describes the mutilation of black bodies during lynchings. In light of her recent passing, this CLE will discuss the history of lynching in the United States and how Civil Rights laws have evolved over time to remedy it. We will read specific passages from Beloved, discuss the Civil Rights Act and what we can learn from this history, and what Toni Morrison has left behind with her words.
