Hello,

I am a researcher at the University of Antwerp (Belgium) and found a photograph of the lynching of a black boy, dated 1935. Several girls are watching the scene smilingly. Could someone give me the source of this photograph? In which archive was it found?

Kind regards,

Liesbeth

Welcome to the Forum. Just to confirm, are you trying to find a reference for the picture on this page of Mr. Clare's website?

The name of the man was Rubin Stacy and his story is quite famous if you google it; the usual picture you see is this one:

This, however, appears to be a reverse-image of the original,

which you can get from PictureHistory, or from
Alamy - photo B5JEYX.
