A federal law against lynching was passed this year by both houses of Congress. It is a version of the Emmett Till Antilynching Act.

There is a Clemson connection (indirectly) with the Leo Frank lynching. Tom Watson was a populist in Georgia and was a noted racist, anti-Semite, anti-Catholic, who championed punishment for Frank. His daughter married SC newspaperman Walter Brown who was a good friend of Jimmie Byrnes SC statesman and served as a press secretary. Brown ended up owning WSPA radio/TV. When sold, the Watson - Brown foundation was founded and has provided scholarships including to Clemson students and for the conservation of important manuscripts written by John C. Calhoun.

Vince, I know the theme of your presentation was lynching, but it seems that our state has not removed itself from the history books re: racial violence. The 1968 Orangeburg shooting of three SC State students and the racially motivated killings at Mother Emmanuel Church in 2015
