This image with post is the first piece of evidence that Mary Turner had been lynched on May 19, 1918. That was 99 years ago as of May 19, 2017. Malcolm X was born on that date in 1925.

A few people have determined that the best way to deal with the shame they feel for those who committed this atrocity is to claim it was a hoax.

Visit MaryTurner.org to learn about Mary Turner and the atrocity that led to her death in detail.

Mary Turner was one of at least 148 documented cases of Black Women who were lynched in the United States of America. Seven years to the day after Mary Turner was lynched, Malcolm X came to this planet. It surprises us that the two events occurred on the same date seven years apart yet they are not as well known. Mary Turner’s lynching should be as well known as Malcolm X’s birthday if for no other reason the date is the same.
