Both Graves and Wells were making a case about the historical evolution of lynching. Lynching, they maintained, was not a practice that consisted of one set of formal properties that deﬁned it. Rather, lynching—like the discourses that defended and critiqued it—was evolving, and could be best understood as a series of different practices that were engineered to respond to particular historical and social conditions. The debates in the twentieth century would coalesce around the afﬁrmation or denial of transformation, of change, of historical evolution in the practice of lynching.
Wells gives us an exemplary model of such dissent in the case of the Reverend King of Paris, Texas. As Henry Smith was suffering the most gruesome tortures in this 1893 lynching, the African American minister stood up to the mob of ten thousand people and implored them not to lynch this poor soul, ﬁrst praying loudly in the midst of the mob and then standing at the foot of the burning scaffold and crying out: “In the name of God . . ” Severely beaten, threatened with lynching, and then forced into exile, King, despite failing to prevent the lynching, nonetheless stands as a paradigm of what a morally upright individual could do in the face of mob violence.
After showing how it emerged and became dominant, I demonstrate what role it continues to play by looking at a lynching in Jasper, Texas, in 1998. I examine the public and popular discussion of this event to show in what ways we are still operating under the terms and within the tenets provided by the end-of-lynching discourse. The end-of-lynching discourse works insidiously and by denial. It argues that lynchings were a thing of the past, downplays anything resembling a lynching, and works to lessen the publicity previously granted to lynchings.
